How to Be an Effective Manager
There’s a line that separates good and bad managers. One who actively listens and is knowledgeable to their teams, and another who has an iron grip on decisions and tasks. They both produce different results.
If you want the better one, there are ways to help you out!
Set Achievable Goals
Goals give direction to an employee’s accomplishment and a purpose. It is what they will strive to achieve. Imagine being a commander in a war. And your enemies’ defense needs to be down. As your army charges towards that common goal in mind, the fence will crumble in no time. Change that into an office setting and your team will be breaking records for exemplary performance.
Delegate Work Wisely
Handing out tasks to your employees not only multiplies the work accomplished but also gives your team a chance to improve their skills and confidence. Don’t be the type to step in on every occasion. That's why it’s important to know your members, their skills, and talents. Study their strengths and weaknesses and assign work to the right employee!
Make Time for Your Team
Managers don’t have to be glued to their desks from 9 to 5, aside from their breaks. It’s not healthy to keep yourself isolated from your team. If you want your members motivated, let them know you are open for discussions.
Take time to ask about their well-being, their tasks or if they are in need of your assistance. Building a good relationship doesn’t mean breaking the Manager-Employee code. But a sign that you have your team’s back.
Miscommunication could lead to delays, mistakes or may even brew tension in the team. Your instructions should be clear and not limited to any communication platform like emails and office chats but in person as well.
Listen to their feedback and criticism and make your staff feel that their opinions matter. Effective communication can speed up their tasks or identify issues before it escalates beforehand.
Motivate your team, and the best way to do it is by recognizing their hard work or achievements. Genuine praises of a job well done can lift your team’s spirit in ten folds. But rewarding them can soar your team’s performance to new levels.
Recognizing achievements boosts confidence and motivation. So, if your team previously worked on a stressful project, appreciate their efforts with recognition and possibly, a reward!
