Who is the most powerful person you know? How exactly do they maintain their power? Does it have anything to do with their abilities and talents, or is it more a matter of what they are willing to do to simplify a complex problem into a simple one? Simplicity and power go hand in hand, and they are both a part of a well balanced person who understands who they are and what they want out of life.
Simplicity is not the same thing as naiveté, nor is it the same thing as simple minded. Rather simplicity results from the ability to control your own mind from becoming too complex too soon when thinking over different matters. Power and responsibility are similar things, but power and simplicity use similar techniques to sustain themselves.
When we, as humans, make and break relationships with each other, we come to understand just how complex life can get. But, when we simplify our relationships down to give and take, nurture and receive, as well as maintaining our own identities, we become more powerful than we first realized we could be.
The same thing applies to business.
When people in business have a strong understanding of the simple business process overlaying throughout the company, they can then correctly focus on their little bit of the company structure and they can focus on the details regarding that. However, when even the lowliest of employees are not aware or informed enough to understand how the company operates as a whole, then their attempts to be successful can have more destructive capacities than productive ones. Therefore, it is important to know what type of business in which you are working, and what the overall structure of the business is and what the functions are of the key players in the company.
By the same token, it is good to know about any employees who are not measuring up to your business standards, at least as far as company policy goes. If your any of your employees are abusing drugs or alcohol while at work, then you must know about it.
