Hard work V/s Smart work :

Hard work V/s Smart work Difference w.r.t to working style A smart worker is the one who does thing smartly. That means he knows people from whom he can get work done and will delegate to them. For Example: a merchant who is out to make a sale. He believes in delegation of work while keeping minimal amount of work with him. He believes in coordination and managing things.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A harder worker on the other hand puts long hours every day, probably doing the same thing again and again. For Example: a hard worker is like an artist who meticulously works on creating and fine tuning his art. He does not delegate and would like to do the work by himself

Source of motivation While a smart worker derives his happiness from the deals he made and the work he got done , Hard worker is happy to solve difficult problems he encountered in course of his work.

Disadvantages when someone is too much preoccupied with his own style of work People with both kinds of personalities taken to extreme, are equally vulnerable. A smart worker who takes his smartness to extreme ,is often seen as an egoistic ,self centered personality. He is seen as a person who will get the work done even if it means trampling over others. In long term, this person will have to face resentment from colleagues and subordinates.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A hard worker who works too hard makes himself invisible. For a great career or business success, meeting people and networking is an essential task. A hard working person however will put his more time on the desk and lesser into meeting with others. As a result he might be seen as cold and unapproachable. He will take upon him everything that he feels others cannot do. He might suffer burnout from too much work.

Small Stories:

Small Stories When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the writing surface). To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity. And what did the Russians do...?? They used a pencil.

PowerPoint Presentation:

CASE 2: It is o ne of the most memorable case studies IN Japanese management. It was the case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty. Immediately, the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty. The management asked its engineers to solve the problem.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast, but they spent a huge amount in this.

PowerPoint Presentation:

But, when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc., but instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.
