MANAGING YOUR TEAM
There are good managers and bad, or not so good. Why? What is the difference? A ‘good manager’ – labelled by the employees under their management, in their team – is often a ‘people person’. With emotional intelligence to understand natural needs and tendencies that people have in common, and realising they are not all the same, and being aware of their own emotional responses to their circumstances and situations they find themselves in.
They are also flexible, approachable and genuine – no hidden agendas, congruent in behaviour and words, and body language. They are trustworthy and helpful, firm but fair.
There are several leadership and management Psychological theories you can find and some key resources to access and learn from – not just what your company provide but finding out and defining your Self as a good, effective and happy manager too!
