“Management is just babysitting adults”

Who hasn’t heard a manager make this statement or one like it. I have decided to agree with them but I also want to encourage these managers to take another look at babysitting.  Which sitter do you want to pay, the one who is simply running around trying to keep the kids from causing any trouble, or the one who is busy encouraging the children to learn, grow and achieve something? Both sets of children won’t get hurt but one will come home happier and better off for being with the babysitter for the day. Managing people is babysitting, but be a good babysitter!
