Tips & advice to help you improve your performance
In life, there are often no blueprints on how things should be done.
However, when it comes to being a manager, there are existing and proven management models that one can follow to improve their own performance and that of their team.
With the world constantly evolving and the integrative part technology plays in our lives, it is no surprise that jobs and job descriptions are quickly changing as well.
It is important for professionals to think ahead and focus on learning skills that are not only valued at the present time, but will be highly sought after in the future.
You already know that without your team, you wouldn’t be able to get the majority of your tasks done.
You have employees, so you already give them projects and manage their outputs, but do you assess your delegation tactics and ever wonder if you should delegate more?
Every manager needs to keep one figure in mind: every time an employee leaves, it can take six to nine months of their salary to recruit, hire and onboard their replacement.
Thus, if that person made £100,000 per year, it can take from £60,000-£90,000 to replace them.
The term empowerment is being thrown around a lot these days in corporate meetings and management trainings, but when asked, not all managers can precisely answer what it is.
Some believe it is delegating while others rewarding their staff members.
Motivating employees is a large part of the manager’s role.
It is a proven fact that individuals perform smarter and better when they are empowered, provided with clear objectives and rewards for achieving them.
Having the ability to make a quick, yet good decision is imperative in all life situations.
To be an effective manager, decision making skills are crucial.
