It’s not easy to put together the 10 tips that work for me managing various teams. I tried to create a small list though. Enjoy!

The wall of Managerial Tips! (Concept from rising star tv-show)

#1 Share Information

Communicate the news that you can, so minds don’t wander

#2 Say Thanks

People want to feel appreciated! A simple thank-you note doesn’t cost a thing and it makes a huge difference

#3 Empower through delegation

We know no one can do it as well as you can, BUT you need to delegate to give yourself time to complete tasks more appropriate for your level.

#4 Set small milestones

If you can’t match last year’s numbers, set milestones that can be reached.

#5 Adjust your style

You have many different communication styles & personalities on your team. Don’t think that you can manage everyone the same way.

#6 Have Fun

Your team wants to enjoy going to work. Play ten minutes.

#7 Remove obstacles

Bureaucracy stifles creativity and innovation. Cut down some of the paperwork.

#8 Give Feedback

Your direct reports want feedback, and it’s crucial in making your team as productive as possible

#9 Manage by example

When your people see you putting in extra hours, they are inspired to jump in and follow your lead.

#10 Follow the 80:20 principle

Focus the majority of your time and attention on the 20% of your people and projects that generate 80% of your results
