When we first start working in a management position what do you wish that someone had told you back then? Being in the management position is not easy you have to deal with a lot of employees and every employee has a different character and attitude. There are a lot of management techniques and tips such as consulting. If you are managing your own people you should understand that it is complicated since you are dealing with all kinds of people. So you got to expect that your employees will not be the same. Try to be alert on what is going on with them. If your employee is still new in the company try to observe and get to know your employee well such as checking on what they are doing, their achievements, goals and work.
Another thing is to get to know your staff such as learning on how to deal with hardheaded employees. Also try avoiding or re-inventing the wheel. As a manager try not to act that you know everything since even if you think you are smart, always put in your mind that you can’t always be 100 percent correct and also there is always someone smarter.
Be honest with your people because you also want your employees to be honest with you right? So be fair even if it is a bad news then try to say it to your employees. Remember honesty is still the best policy.
As a manager you are responsible about everything that happens in the team of your employees. So don’t think that just because you are not doing the actual work you are not responsible.
Try to make decisions that would make the company successful or it would benefit the company as well as your employees. Also laugh together with your staffs or employees. Also defend your people if you know they are right and also reward them with some benefits.
There are still a lot of helpful tips for the managers to succeed as well as the business to prosper. Managing is dealing with the people and your business as well. So always be ready.
