If you are a new manager, there are several skills you need to learn when managing employees. Even seasoned managers can step back and reflect on how well they are managing their teams.
The Economic Times had a short article by Mahima Puri on “Five ways to fit the role of people manager.”
Most first-time managers make a few fundamental mistakes, such as of not being able to delegate the work effectively. “Being successful as a leader does not mean doing everything yourself, but how effectively you get the work done from others,” says Mohinish Sinha, leadership and talent head, Hay Group.
Take one point from the list: delegating, setting clear roles, get to know your team, listen well or work on yourself… and concentrate on it until you feel you have mastered the skill. What is interesting with this process if that the other areas will also develop as well. You will see that the other recommendations grow as well.
