To become an effective manager should be a goal for every manager and entrepreneurs. And that is why I have put together this work.
How time flies! Just last year, I got employment letter from a new firm, Stricta Concept Limited. That wasn't my problem, but the the strict supervision I was subjected to.
But today, I look out for such supervision and can't find one. In fact, I hardly notice those initial "gragra."
One thing became clear to me; I was strictly supervised to get acquainted with the company procedures. It's like the arrival of a new baby to the family. 90% of the attention will be diverted to the baby.
And because I'm no new employee, it's to whom much is given, much is expected of him.
An effective manager do not spend much time with those who know the company front and back.
The two first steps of becoming and effective manager first discussed; goal setting and honest appreciation are more applicable to newbies in order to get them familiarised with the company. But when the employees have grown, they only get supervised freedom.
In this final approach, you will learn what to do when a skilful person does a childish mistake and how to go about it.
As the employee has become conversant with the company, it's wise to allow them begin to set their goals in line with the company objective by themselves. However, subject to your final verification.
Don't take the burden doing all the administrative duties all by yourself. When they do the drafting of goals for themselves, they tend to put more creative effort in it and commitment.
#Reprimanding An Erring Staff
There are possibly two ways to critic a person; by attacking the person's personality and by criticising the person's behaviour. When you critic a person's personality, you end up debasing the person's self-esteem. This approach is very wrong.
Thus, to become effective in your management technique, you should pay attention to behavioural criticism rather than person.
Take for instance, during my stay with Dennisin International Company Limited, as a staffer. I was invariably, useful to the company. I did my work with minding of the peanut payment I was been given every month.
But, something happened. The company employed a new staff. And that was the beginning of problem within the staff. The new intake would lie against us in our back, and because the person will worked with was opened - he would accept every single thing been told with questioning us.
A day came when I finished my normal routine work and our manager worked in, unleashed vexation on me. Not just that but instead of chastising me for the work I did if he assumed I didn't do it well, he started attacking my person.
Although, my then manager wasn't educated, he spoke I'll of me, leaving what he presumed I didn't do well.
That was the end of me working with him with my mind.
I was worker, who only seek for payment without commitment.
So, how do you rebuke an erring professional staff or worker?
# Reprimand people immediately
# Tell people what they did wrong—be specific.
# Tell people how you feel about what they did wrong - in clear words
# Shake hands, or touch them in a way that lets them know you are honestly on their side.
In summary, all what I have been trying to drive home is this:
# You set Smart Goals with your people to make sure they know what they are being held accountable for and what good performance looks like.
# You then try to catch them doing something right so you can give them an honesty appreciation.
# And then, finally, if they have all the skills to do something right and they don’t, you chastise them.
