After decades of faddish management styles that emulate everything from samurai warriors to Napoleon to intrepid yet unsuccessful British explorers, we have arrived at a workplace environment chararcterized by a lack of job security, low employee morale and a lack of employee loyalty. It is time for a common-sense way to manage people and their work. Enter St. Benedict ... St. Benedict was an Italian cleric who set up the first monasteries in the West in the fifth century AD and established the Benedictine Order. In his book, The Rule of St. Benedict, he sets out in clear and easy-to-understand language the basics of organizing and motivating people. Since St. Benedict's time 1,500 years ago, the Benedictine monks have run universities and hospitals, foundries and wineries. They have monasteries on five continents and their organization has survived wars, revolutions and plagues. They must be doing something right.
