As managers, we have been given the responsibility to manage the organization or agency’s most valuable asset, the staff. So, how easy or difficult is that?
Though there is never a dull moment, my long term strategy has always been to use a lot of common sense combined with a great dose of psychology, (the study of human behavior). One must uncover what motivates them and what frustrates them? As a manager, how much do I show empathy for my staff problems? Moreover, do I make time to listen to them, to coach and acknowledge good performance accordingly? Finally, can you identify who has the talent and capacity to become candidates for the succession plan?
In order to succeed and get the job done right remember that it is all about the strongest effort of a team lead by you, acknowledging strengths and weaknesses along the way, working together towards accomplishing the mission and goals. The expected outcome will be the success of the organization or agency and the team’s satisfaction of a job well done collectively.
