Man Has Made Use Of His Intelligence; He Invented Stupidity ….. Remy de Gourmont

 

Managers don’t always set goals that work. Managers can make “S.T.U.P.I.D.” goals.

  • S = selfish and ignore others needs
  • T = threatening and intimidate others with harsh consequences
  • U = undermining and neglect authority or break the chain-of-command
  • P = pricey and use resources that aren’t budgeted
  • I = ignore and disregard company policy
  • D = dubious and are vague and unclear

selfish

Stupid goals can be Selfish and serve only the manager which destroys buy-in from those who the manager is counting on to deliver results.

Stupid goals can intimidate or Threaten staff causing less motivation and efforts while simultaneously creating higher turnover and costs.

Stupid goals Undermine authority, telling team members the manager doesn’t support the organization which eliminates referent authority and the ability to influence work.

expensive

Stupid goals are Pricey and tied to performance that eliminates one of the most important results of an organization – costs.

Stupid goals Ignore company policy, telling team members the manager doesn’t support the organization which eliminates referent authority and the ability to influence work.

Stupid goals are Dubious and vague making even the best performers invest their efforts into results that have nothing to do with the goal itself.

Stupid goals don’t deliver results, cost a lot, repel motivation, and are hard to follow making them – well – stupid!
