The Big 3 Vital Habits of Great Managers

September 18, 2015


#1: Effective at Managing Time  Effective time management starts with a great time management attitude; Don't Waste Time! Change anything that could make things better for yourself, and those affected by you - especially those who work for you!


#2: Effective at Giving Feedback  Effective feedback is open and honest. It is timely. It does not destructively criticize, but rather builds the other person up - it is constructive. It is realistic and useful, not nit-picky or expecting perfection. Feedback builds teams effectively.


#3 Effective as Role Models  Managers who walk their talk are noticed and emulated by others. They are known as people of high character, and this strengthens their ability to influence others in positive ways.


If these "habits" strike a chord with you, think about them in light of these questions: 

First, what should you STOP doing that detracts from these habits?

Second, what should you START doing that will strengthen these habits?

And third, what should you RESURRECT - things you’ve let slip that you know are effective?
