Defining business hierachy

Hello readers, so today I will be talking about hierachy in business. I am sure most individuals have been employed before. One of the challenges individuals do face at work as to do with positions.

So she did not respond, she called (by phone) a superior colleague to report the situation and the superior colleague told her not to respond.

This HOD that called her has just been promoted (Director), however, she is still holds the HOD position. Because, she has been promoted as a Director she feels she is now superior to the other HOD. However, the other HOD does not feel that way, this is because 1. They are both HODs and 2. She feels her department is more important, as she and two people that are superior to her at work are the ones that take the important positions during meetings.

That is just a scenario, some individuals do face that at work too. One person thinking they are the superior and the other person not thinking the same way. This does cause conflict at work, in order to make work move smoothly, business owners should have a clearly defined structure. That way each individual will be ascertained about their position, and will also know who can control their action at work.

That is all for today, keep checking my blog regularly. Cheers!

Trust is built when you offer good quality for reasonable prices.

Some products are bought regularly while some products are purchased seasonally. If your products fall into the seasonal category, you should only purchase them to be resold during that season. At times buyers purchase products on behalf of another individual. In that situation, you have to capture the mind of both the buyer and the actual person tha…
