Create a good working space
By focusing on creating a good working space, you create the absolute best conditions for your employees to evolve and solve their tasks. The better workspace you provide, the more space your employees have, to be creative and come up with good solutions.
Know your team
Once you know your team and individual competencies, you will be confident that they will handle the tasks you ask them to do. Maybe there is some tasks which is not fulfilled which mean that you might have to look for new employees, but you also need to be aware of the capabilities the company already has.
Listen to your team
Giving the team influence and co-determination will increase productivity, but also be aware that you are the leader, and you must make sure that you set the guidelines. However, it is important that the team can confidently express opinions. Otherwise, potentially important things will not see the light of day, but simply remain an idea in an employee’s head.
Guide your employees
By coaching and guiding your employees, you can make them move in the direction you want. It is good for the company, develops the employees and gives a feeling that everyone is lifting the company.
By giving your employees space to be creative, different solutions will be created. Solutions that none of your competitors have invented or are working on. That way you can get a better position in the market.
In general, it is important for top executives to be willing to take chances. If you always choose the safe way, the company may be present for many years, but it will not develop. It can be important to trust your gut feeling and the experience you have when making the big decisions.
Prioritize your time
As a manager everyone will look up to you and interact with you, therefore it is important that you can prioritize your time and tasks.
The inexperienced manager will take on tasks such as email inbox and phone calls first, while the experienced manager chooses to solve the tasks that have the greatest effect on the company. The goal is to meet expectations, achieve goals and develop the business.
