My experience of being a manager is not extensive but enough to realize that there are several factors that play a major role in achieving success.
I spent two years as accounting manager for a major rental company. During this time, I managed a team of nine people. I also spent the past three years being controlled / supervised. I learned to be consistent and well with the following factors it is necessary to be a good manager. Not only that, but it will make your job easier and more efficient and will also enable employees to succeed in their work.
Being honest with your team members may seem obvious, but when you're in a situation that may be uncomfortable to you or to them, it can be difficult. However, it is extremely important that you are honest and thorough in all relations with your subordinates. This would include feedback, both good and bad, training, reminder, reviews and daily communication. By being honest, you must build trust, which will give you respect and give the team reason to want to do a good job for you.
Always remember that recognize a good / great job. It's a human nature to point out the mistakes of others, so it goes without saying that we will communicate when an employee has done insufficient work. However, you must be sure that you recognize the other side too. The award of good work will build confidence and enable the team to make more decisions on their own. With your team making more decisions on your own, it will save your time to do other value-added activities and will train your team in decision making. The type of reward / confirmation should be consistent with the quality of work.
Another important thing to remember is that keep comments about your vocational education daily if possible . If you do not have time to do it daily, then at least do it weekly. This is a great way to give honest temporary feedback and will save you a lot of time when it's time to write in writing. Managing nine people, I had a review to write about each month. Before I started using this little flavor, it could take me almost two whole days to write a good review, including sifting through email and punishing my brain for examples of good work and areas that needed to be improved. Once I had implemented this simple remark to take a plan when it was time to write the review, I realized that I had almost written it. All I had to do was move it in a suitable form. The benefits of this simple task will depend on how you aim to manage your team with limited resources.
Finally, since all of us who have spent time as managers know, it's very important that you know how to listen to . Being a good active listener is priceless to be a good manager. In my experience as a manager, enabling your employees to talk about whatever, you want a way to build trust and respect again. I used to have a monthly meeting with each of my team members and one requirement for the meeting was that I was not allowed to discuss the matter. The subject was what the employee wanted to discuss. Being a good listener also involves knowing your employees, which is the key to understanding how they learn, what motivates them, etc.
If you really want to succeed as a manager and if you want to see your employees succeed then I highly recommend putting these simple tasks / processes / ideas into place for your business. And remember that all I've mentioned is important, but the first is the most important. Always be honest in everything you do and you will be rewarded for it.
