Just want to add that a good Manager empower employees by:commiting for the long haul,reward and recognize positive result of empowerment,paint a picture of what they want to acomplish,they have fun with staff.
but there are some problems in some communities to manage them.
for example, in Afghanistan the best manager is a manager who has the right to terminate an employ, other ways he can not be an excellent manager however he has all managing points. could you please tel me know what king of management is good for them.
Good managers are good communicators. We've all heard about mushroom managers who keep their team in the dark but people don't respond to that kind of leadership. Meeting the team regularly on a one-to-one and team meeting basis, and ensuring that everyone knows their role and what is expected on them will improve the performance of your team. If everyone has a job description which is flexible enough to allow you to deal with unusual situations as they arise, this can be a valuable tool. Rigid conformity to strictly applied rules can eventually be a barrier to progress.
If you face trouble in expressing the simplest of thoughts, then you are probably lacking what it takes to become a successful leader. As a leader, you are supposed to manage a team as well as also communicate the right thoughts and ideas in the most ethical way possible. To be able to express yourself is a great gift and a quality that every leader must possess. A good leader must also have a great sense of humor and should be able to crack jokes with the teammates, hence creating a light and healthy working environment for everyone.
Listening carefully to what your team tell you not only avoids pitfalls but also engenders team spirit. Sending e-mails to all the team makes people feel included. Communicating with only one or a few members of the team leads to jealousy and disaffection. Hierarchical management systems suffer from messages passed down the line that change by the time they reach some recipients from what they were when they began their journey.
See the positives in your staff and their work. Don’t be one of those bosses who only sees what’s missing rather than what’s been achieved. It is demoralizing for staff to have someone only see what they have done ‘wrong’. Positivity breeds positivity. Genuine and meaningful praise goes a long way. If this is difficult for you, get in the habit of noting down positive things you notice about how your staff work. Give feedback regularly and let them know that you see the good work they do.
Are you one of those individuals who have the guts to speak up when required as well as also stay unbiased no matter what the situation is? If yes, then you certainly have one of the most important qualities that make a great leader with unmatched management skills. A good character helps people in putting their trust in you, which as we know is a very important characteristic in the corporate world today. A leader with character and great commanding power is followed by people of his team as well as also admired by others.
Whether you have news related to work or whether it is an informal interaction, a good manager always makes an effort to keep his subordinates in the loop. Employees must remain updated as to what has to be done how in order to do their job efficiently and on time.
The first essential part of a manager's role is to ensure that what should be done now is done effectively and efficiently within the constraints of budget and time. Dealing with the present can be stressful, especially when there are staff shortages, a lack of facilities, tight budgets and an excessive demand for the service or product that is to be provided. Training people to be multi-tasking can reduce the problems caused when a member of your team is absent. However, sooner or later you will need alternatives--a plan B, for example. Good negotiating skills and the ability to persuade more senior managers to provide the resources you require are a valuable asset. Always develop good working relationships with anyone who can assist your cause.
This is a great perspective for the “good vs. bad” manager. Take it a step further and this is an excellent observation of what the requirement is for a leader in all facets of our lives. We need “bottom-up” leadership in business and society alike. I challenge myself as a leader to truly observe, listen, encourage, and lead by doing when required. I recognize that I am only as good as my team which is why I am passionate about empowering my team to become better problem solvers and I don’t disguise my belief that they are the experts and I can learn from them. We need more Leaders in this world, we have enough Managers!
I asked my boss once, what makes everyone want to work for you? Why are you such a popular manager, with everyone liking you, working very hard for you? His answer was quite simple. Give and Take….He said. Give away all the praise, and Take all the blame. This creates very loyal workers who will go the extra mile for you. They come to know you will praise them for the good, and protect them from the bad.
