Supporting Your Team – Encourage Self Management
As a manager, you have a great deal on your plate the majority of the time. But one of the most important things (if not the most important thing) you can do is to make time to support your team.
The best managers will step back and let their team do their job without standing over their shoulders. Encourage your team to manage themselves. You can assign personal objectives to each member and empower them to succeed and do what they do well. Give them the opportunity to make decisions and don’t second guess them. Remind them that if they need support, they can come to you.
