8 Qualities of a Great Manager (via Google)

As seen in Prasad Setty’s presentation about HR at Google.

  1. Be a good coach
  2. Empower the team and do not micromanage
  3. Express interest / concern for team member’s success and personal well-being
  4. Be very productive / result oriented
  5. Be a good communicator — listen and share information
  6. Help team with career development
  7. Have a clear vision / strategy for the team
  8. Have important technical skills that help advise the team

Actually the list is taken from John’s blog, but it’s so good that I decided to share it here and have it in a safe place for future reference.
