Managing people can be tricky at the best of times. A good manager can squeeze out the best from their employees at the most challenging of times, while a poor one will never really unlock the full potential of the workers in their team.
Luckily, this Blueglass article outlines several management mistakes to avoid. The article reveals the following key mistakes:
- Not using the correct management style. Individual workers and teams perform and respond better to different management styles.
- Not considering what would motivate employees. Ultimately, you need to address that most basic of questions – “what’s in it for me?”
- Creating teams that have similar personalities.
- Not trusting your own decisions.
