Managing Employess: Be a Better Manager
Think back over the jobs you’ve held in the past. Which ones stand out as the best, most challenging, and rewarding? Which ones were plain misery? In retrospect, there’s probably one constant that separated the good jobs from those that were horrendous: Your boss.
A good boss can inspire you to great achievement, while a bad boss can be thoroughly demotivating and make your life a living hell.
The qualities most often associated with good managers include fairness, compassion, supportiveness, consistency, and the ability to inspire workers to deliver their best. And while you might think these are innate qualities, they aren’t; these are skills that anyone can work to develop, regardless of their natural temperament or experience.
