Are You Ready To Be A Better Manager?

I am guessing that if you are in a management role, you would like to thrive and prosper. After all, if you thrive and prosper, your career soars and you get the rewards that this brings.

So if you are ready to be a better manager, what do you need to consider?

    What is expected of you?

  • Interestingly, when I pose this question to clients, they often struggle to come up with a good answer. You may have a list of objectives or a job description but are you clear on what is expected of you as a manager? If not, make it a priority to find out.
  • Do a self assessment

  • Spend some time reflecting on what it is you do really well and what areas might need developing. Armed with this, you can take immediate action to move forward.
  • Actively seek feedback

  • Feedback is the catalyst for change. More often than not, people will identify things that you do well that you are not even aware of.
  • Create a development plan

  • We also need to grow and develop. Standing still is quite simply not an option.

The truth is some simple things can make big differences to the results you achieve. So what needs your attention most?
