6 Basic Tips for New Managers


As we develop our skills and experiences in our professional trade, we are driven to move up the proverbial ladder in our careers. When we achieve our career goals, we are placed into management positions that come with new tasks, more responsibility, and more often than not, a new team to manage. When the excitement of the promotion, increased pay, and sometimes a bigger office wears off, we are faced with the fact that we now have a team to manage and no clue what to do. We may know from past experiences what kind of manager we don’t want to become. However, in reality, our career training may include little to no management training other than what reports to submit and how often. So what do you do when you’re faced with the challenge of managing a team with little to no experience in team management? Well, here are six simple tips that will help you build and maintain a healthy team with loyal, trusting members.

1. Set Boundaries

Two very common misconceptions amongst new managers are (1) if you are “friendly” with your team members, they will respect you more, and (2) if your team fears you, they will respect you. These are both myths that can be damaging to your career if you follow them.

In developing your relationships with your team, be very mindful keep it professional. Your aim is not to be their buddy, nor is it to be a dictator.

2. Set Expectations

Keep it simple by setting clear expectations. Let your team know what you need, when you need it, and what you want it look like. If you expect your team to strictly adhere to company policies and procedures, communicate that with them, and review the policies and procedures. Do this for everything that concerns you; from cancellation procedures to dress code. If you’re not a stickler about the dress code, then don’t press the issue. However, keep in mind that when your team is performing poorly or unethically, it is you that will be held responsible.

3. Weekly Meetings

Back when I simply had a job and not a career, I loathed meetings. I thought they were a waste of everyone’s time. However, after 14 years of career experience, I have come to appreciate the necessity of team meetings. This is primarily because I learned how to conduct and participate in short productive meetings. Weekly meetings keeps everyone on the same page. They reveal areas of concerns and allow you and your team to share experiences – both good and bad. Weekly meetings are also a great way to build relationships with your team members.

4. Goals and Incentives

Have you ever been working on a tedious task and felt like your hard work was being done in vain and just wanted to know when was it going to end? Setting small achievable and measurable goals helps create a since of achievement. It also aids in creating ownership. Set goals for your teams and offer them an incentive for going beyond them.

5. Share the Wealth

If you gain knowledge of something that can or will affect your team, share that knowledge with them. Of course, do not share information that jeopardized your management role or violates the code of management ethics that is established within your organization.

If you receive an award or recognition for your department’s success, share that success with your team. After all, you couldn’t have done it without them.

If you are reprimanded for your team’s poor performance, share that, too! You don’t have to go into gory details of how your supervisor let you have it, but it’s important for your team to know what went wrong. Let them share with you their views and opinions on why the project or task was performed poorly as well as what measures should be taken to avoid future poor performances. You don’t necessarily have to accept their opinions or advice, but listen to them. No one knows better where the glitch in the system lies better than the person that uses it daily for 8 hours a day for 5 days a week.

6. Thank Them

Thank your team and thank them often. I’ve found that “thank you” is the most powerful, action driving phrase you can utter in business. You may never know just how much a simple “thank you” means to some members on your team.

Of course these tips are not all inclusive, but they will definitely help you along the way towards management success.


Business Innovation and the Solo Inventor Considered – Think Tank Topic


One of the underlining themes and subtopics at any think tank here in the United States is that of inventing and innovation. Americans are quite good at entrepreneurship and innovation, and they are quite resourceful when it comes to inventing, and coming up with new ideas and concepts. Not long ago, I was discussing this with an acquaintance, that is to say the subject of inventing and innovation and we both decided those were a priority in our own lives, as well as they should be in any think tank.

So I started a conversation with a couple paragraphs, one paragraph on each; inventing, and innovation. Here is what I had to say that let off the conversation and dialogue on this topic;

Inventing:

Challenges with faulty patent registrations, costs to patent, regulations against garage inventors, regulations against what you can drive, fly, make. CC&Rs, home-business rules, Intellectual Property Theft, International IP abuses, information control of research papers. The good side we have lots of creative and innovative people in our country along with the entrepreneurial risk taking genes and a society which allows it – for the most part, and 300 million people here. We have a challenge with conspiracy theory that the government will find a way to shut down your invention – and to be honest with ourselves there have been some cases of bureaucratic purposeful stifling on behalf of competitors.

Innovation:

Risk/Reward issues challenge innovation in the US. Why put out the money if regulations will never allow you to capitalize on it? Why put out the money if you can’t make a profit due to international IP theft. Funding to only university labs is not always a good use of funds for research, slow motion. Free enterprise works best, small business is brilliant at it. Costs are a consideration. Luckily we do have an innate need to innovate and improve in the US, which serves us well.

Now then, as you can see this launched a huge dialogue on the topic because if we truly want to remain the innovators of the world – and if we truly wish to use our resources of entrepreneurship then we need to make it easier for inventors to invent, and make it easier for innovators to make money with the concepts which they create. From there we can let the free market take it as far as it will and yes, there will be winners and losers.


Successfully Succeeding In Being Successful


Money is rarely a measure of success.

Few people ever succeed in having enough money.

I cannot be successful without a purpose in my life.

I cannot succeed as long as my purpose remains unfulfilled.

I cannot be successful and be discontent.

When I succeed in my life mission, I will be content.

When I am content with my mission in life and fulfilled with my purpose in life, I will succeed in being joyfully happy.

When I make my happiness dependent on being successful, I will fail.

When I need to attain success, I will fail.

When I need to achieve success, I will fail.

When I need to accomplish success, I will fail.

When I know that my success is assured, I cannot fail.

When my success is a duality of failure, I am not succeeding.

I am trying to accomplish, achieve or attain whatever it is that I believe will ensure my success.

There is nothing that I need to do to succeed.

There is nothing that I need to have to succeed.

There is no-one I need to be to succeed.

When I believe that there is, I am focusing on my present lack of success; which is my failure.

My life will forever continue to present opportunities for my Self to attain more emotional power, achieve more mental authority and accomplish more ably whatever I am physically doing.

My success is ensured.

My only failure is to fail to see how successful I already am.

A task is what I need to accomplish skillfully.

When I accomplish a task or accomplish the skill or ability to do a task, I become accomplished in that skill or task.

I Attain a state of being.

An attainment is a state of being that I can consciously choose at will.

It is who I choose to be and the state of being that I attribute to my Self.

It is often confused with attaining a level of authority in my role, which is an objective; or attaining a level of skill in that role, which is an accomplishment.

I succeed in successfully gaining success when I attain the emotional power, achieve the mental authority and accomplish the physical ability to live my life happily & well.
