The Principles of Managing People

I’ll be talking about different stories that have influenced my management career on this blog. But first, it’s important for you to know what my principles of management are:

There is more stress in the workplace than ever before. People believe they’re working harder for lower quality of life than their parents. In this information age, workers are also more aware of what’s going on in the world. People work to live, they do not live to work. This isn’t a judgment or complaint; it’s a fact. It’s a fact that managers must realize every day when creating their own management style. Successful managers discover what their team wants and needs, then develop a style to fit the needs of their team, and themselves.

The characteristics of great managers of people:

  • They have established Core Values
  • They are able to clearly set and deliver on expectations
  • They are world-class communicators
  • They inspect what they expect
  • They are able to instill passion in those around them
  • They take ownership and responsibility
  • They treat people around them well
  • They are innovative and unafraid to take risks
  • They adapt to change
  • They commit to their success
  • They plan and expect to succeed
