What Makes For a Good Management Style?

Good managers know what to do and when to do it. Successful managers have three key tolls at their disposal that sets them apart from the crowd and which will almost guarantee that they progress and develop both themselves and their teams.

  1. Being INCLUSIVE: using all of the team and knowing what each member can bring to an issue or problem.
  2. Being COLLABORATIVE: fine to champion your own Department or area but this needs to sit alongside a desire to work with other managers and peers to promote the wider work of the organisation.
  3. Being SUPPORTIVE: a source of counsel, advice, guidance and direction in a way that empowers the individual and lets them set their own goals to chase.
  4. Being a good DELEGATOR: adding value to what is going on but not getting involved in the minute details of the task. Working out which members of staff need more support than others and identifying what tasks would be good to get off your own work list but which would also give good learning/development opportunities to the staff concerned.
  5. Being able to VALUE THE BASICS: knowing what is going on a day-to-day basis so that there are no surprises along the way.

Good Luck!
