On Being a Good Manager

My wife had a lousy manager at the end of her career. So did I. What’s it take to be a good manager? Over the next few months, I’ll give you my thoughts.

It’s easy to beĀ  a lousy manager. There a dime a dozen. Most are prompted because they have the ability to manage up.

But what skills and attributes does it take to be a good manager?

Empathy – Undertsand other people’s position

Listener – Listen to what others think

Contemplative – Just because you made a decision doesn’t always mean it’s the right one. Be willing to change your mind. You’re human!

Enabler – Challenge others. Enable them to succeed.

Delegate – A manager can do so much. Skillfully delegate to achieve even more as a team!
