Do you have a plan to develop your management skills? How can you assure that this time next year you will be a better manager than you are today? What areas will you focus on?
Managing involves a wide range of skills and motivations. Continuous improvement is essential if you want to excel. If your organization or others provide manager training, take advantage of it. If you can find a good mentor, do it. If these opportunities are not available, you can observe others and their management techniques – seeing what works, what doesn’t and what approaches you want to adopt. Read – pick books that attract you – your management style cannot be prescribed, you will build it yourself to fit your values and leadership style.
Don’t wait for others to do it for you. Create a roadmap to being the best manager you can be.
