The Five Key Roles Of A Manager

Being a manager can sometimes be a big challenge. The people that you manage have expectations of you. Your boss has expectations of you in terms of what you should deliver. The chances are you will also have expectations of yourself.

At the same time, I believe there are some key roles that a manager needs to perform:

Deciding what needs to be done

There are always a lot of things that need doing. At the same time, you need to make sure that you are focussing effort appropriately. As the manager, you need to decide what needs doing.

Get things done through others

No matter how great a manager you are, what you can achieve alone is limited. As a result, you need to be able to get things done through others. A core part of this is knowing what people on your team do best and getting them to focus on this.

Making use of resources at your disposal

People are obviously one of the most important resources that you have at your disposal. As a manager, there are also many other resources at your disposal such as IT, equipment, buildings etc. Your job as a manager is to make the best use of all the resources that you have available.

Handling obstacles and problems

A lot of the time when you are in a management role you have a big role to play in responding to problems. It can be tough but comes with the territory of being a manager. This requires a whole host of skills ranging from being clear about what you want to negotiating the way forward.

Delivering results

Last of the list of the five key roles but by no means least is delivering results. As a manager, how you are viewed is to a large extent influenced by the results you deliver.

The Bottom Line: The role of the manager is broad and diverse but there are some key roles to achieving success as a manager.
