John has just graduated from the College of Business Administration at State University and has joined his family’s small business, which employs twenty-five semiskilled workers. During the first week on the job, his dad called him in and said: “john, I’ve had a chance to observe you working with the men and women for the past two days and, although I hate to, I feel I must say something. You are just too nice to people. I know they taught you that human relations stuff at the university, but it just doesn’t work here. I remember when we discussed the Hawthorne studies when I was in school and everybody at the university got all excited about them, but believe me, there is more to managing [people than just being nice to them.”
