Keep it Simple! The goal of management is to
manage both yourself and the people you work
with so that the organization and its
employees benefit from your presence. This is a goal that can be achieved regardless
of where on the management ladder you stand.
The goal of any organization
is results and results are achieved
through people. Ken Blanchard, author of
"One Minute Manager" points out that
people who feel good about themselves produce
better results, therefore as a manager, one of
your responsibilities (a the key to getting
more out of people) is to help make people
feel good about themselves.
Make sure that it is clear
what your employees responsibilities are and
what they are going to be held accountable
for. Foster a philosophy of 'no
surprises'. Everyone knows what is expected of
Set goals and performance
standards. It is not enough to agree on a
goal. Define what has to happen for that goal
to be considered as achieved.
