Most workers would go to great lengths to have the opportunity to manage others. But why is that? What drives them to want to obtain this title?
Who else in 2022 wants to be a good manager?
Surprisingly, many prospective managers are uninterested in learning what makes a good manager.
It’s like not studying hard enough for a test and expecting to come in first. They are just interested in obtaining the desired position of manager without first laying the foundation.
What makes people want to attain this title, though? Is it only the respect that comes with the title that makes you feel this way? Is it the increased duty that comes with it, or is it something else? Is it merely a sense of accomplishment after reaching a career milestone?
Well, the answer is yes to everything. It’s the culmination of all of these emotions that motivates us to climb above our colleagues and assume control of one of the most important positions in a company. While the managerial job has its advantages in terms of professional advancement, it can also be a thankless one.
One of the attributes of a successful manager, in my opinion, is the ability to strike a delicate balance between employees’ demands and requirements, corporate goals, and personal well-being and aspirations. And saying it is easier than doing it.
Managers are frequently under continual stress as a result of having to handle so many things at once. They are exclusively accountable for the project’s success or failure, as well as the performance of the teams they lead. While the manager has exclusive responsibility for project failure, credit for its success is frequently attributed to the whole team. So, if you’ve only recently obtained this position, you’d best pull your socks up and conduct an extensive study on the characteristics of a good manager. This will assist you in preparing for the difficult (as well as rewarding) times ahead.
If you’ve made it this far, I’m sure you want to know everything there is to know about how to be the best manager and carve out a place for yourself. Stay closely because if you read it all the way to the end, every question that has been bothering you will be addressed.
“What are the attributes of a good manager that distinguish him/her from the rest of the pack?”
“What are the qualities of a good manager that distinguish him/her from the rest of the pack?” I know what you’re thinking right now, but have you spent any time determining what faults to avoid at all costs in order to be a good manager?
No? Okay, we’ll figure it out. Let’s go back to when we first began our professional lives. We’ve worked for a variety of organizations and under a variety of people over the years. From all of those eras, we can clearly identify folks who were not very adept at managing people and influencing others. And, of course, we recall those bosses who excelled at their jobs and motivated us to be better versions of ourselves.
I’m sure most of us recall our previous supervisors’ positive and terrible management skills. What was it about them that we didn’t like or admire? Were they ineffective or effective motivators? Were they easy to find or tough to locate?
We may have differing perspectives on our previous bosses.
