The Role of the Boss
Book Thirteen in the Managing People Series.
The management of people is an art that needs much thought and effort in the first instance, although the long-term benefits can be very rewarding. As few managers are taught the art of managing and developing their team, it is frequently left to managers to work out for themselves – or not, as the case may be.
This eBook looks at the key issues that develop ordinary people into achievers that are a credit to the team and are likely to exceed everyone’s expectations, including their own! The key to success is not just carrying out enlightened people management skills, but being able to measure the results. Measurement and evaluation are critical to this process.
Managers typically focus on the tasks that need to be done within their working area. Being able to develop the people to a higher level of expertise in the required skills is likely to mean a lesser need to manage tasks on the part of the manager. Being focused on the objectives is the key to success in everything. Being able to translate these into something that makes sense to the employees in your team will help them to understand what they should be doing and why they are doing it. Involvement creates commitment.
In order for results to be improved there must be:
- some clear indication of what success looks like
- how it will be measured so people can check themselves out - at all levels with accuracy
A manager who is able to grow achievers is one who is of great value to the organisation. If this is what you want to be then get this eBook today.
