Tools For Navigating Management

A ship’s Captain would not think of sailing without navigational instruments. What about you? How do you successfully navigate managing of your team? Here are some tools that can aid your navigation:

• Identifying your top values as a manager and honoring them

• Having an ally, outside your organization, who can be a sounding board and provide support when you need it

• Doing an informal 360 review each year to receive feedback on your role as manager

• Identifying the key influencers in your organization and staying aware of what they are thinking and doing

• Designing a process for handling crises when they arise
