Ready to Level Up as a Manager? Here Are Some Game-Changing Tips!
Often, people get promoted for doing a great job – but once you have that “manager” title, it’s a whole new ball-game!
So if you’re a new manager, aspiring to be one, or just curious about what it takes, here are some insights I’ve gained from fantastic managers I’ve had the privilege to work with.
Hands Off, Eye On: One manager’s mantra that truly clicked with me. Minimal micro-managing, ample space to learn, and the knowledge that she was there for guidance when needed. Trust, agreed timelines, and consistent reminders of an “open-door” make this strategy a win-win. ????
Regular Touch Points: Scheduled weekly check-ins, even
for remote team members, brought structure to our communication. Quick updates, progress checks, advice, and questions – a disciplined routine fostering a better relationship and mutual reassurance.
Seeking Feedforward: Being open to vulnerability and asking for suggestions can reveal your approachability and humanity. One boss solicited feedback and improvements from the team, fostering a culture of growth and collaboration.
These behaviours encompass
All vital aspects of effective management.
In the hustle of a new managerial role, it’s easy to overlook the people side of systems and routines. And that is where we come in.
Because these simple steps can make a huge difference in how you are regarded as a manager or leader and how you are managing or going to manage your teams.
