How to Be a More Effective Manager

If you are in charge of a team, or business, then you are likely to want to be the best manager you can be!  Here are some tips for being a more effective manager.

The first stage is to understand your team member’s goals and help them to achieve their aspirations.  A manager should be fully aware of a team member’s goals and should be striving to help them achieve those goals.  These goals could be anything from a promotion to a new house or perhaps increased technical knowledge.

It is worth setting tough goals at the start of the year – most organisations set their goals at the start of the year and expect their teams to work hard to achieve throughout the year.  Set your sights high, the higher the better!

Keep your teams busy when you can.  The greatest challenge for business managers is the utilisation of resources.  This is a tough task!  If needed, include colleagues in training and knowledge based activities where possible.
