Better Decisions: Communicate, communicate, communicate – the key to good management


Managing people in today’s hectic world of farming can sometimes be a frustrating experience.

On more than one occasion, I have had producers ask me how they should deal with employees who don’t listen and continually fail to follow instructions.

One of the first approaches I take in dealing with their questions is to ask whether or not they have explained themselves so that their workers understand exactly what they are being asked to perform.
