Managing – Simple Tips For New Managers

  1. Get to know your team

    A huge part of your success is related to your ability to get results through others. If you are to get the best from others, you need to know your team and their respective strengths.

  2. Build relationships

    You need to build relationships with your team but you also need to build relationships with others across the organisation. This might even include partner organisations.

  3. Involve your team

    If there are some changes to be made, involve your team in generating possible solutions. Listen to their ideas; you might just be a little surprised on the quality of their contributions.

  4. Focus on priorities

    There are always lots of things that could be done but you need to focus on priorities.

  5. Start small

    Tempting as is might seem, going straight for a huge transformation or change early on is a huge risk. So start small and build momentum.
