The making of a great manager

RSS

I am blessed with having one of the great managers of all times, Tamar Hosansky. She daily inspires me to stretch and grow both myself and my job. While I doubt she's even read this article by Marcus Buckingham from the Harvard Business Review (via Brand Autopsy), she lives what he prescribes. As he says,

In my research, beginning with a survey of 80,000 managers conducted by the Gallup Organization and continuing during the past two years with in-depth studies of a few top performers, I’ve found that while there are as many styles of management as there are managers, there is one quality that sets truly great managers apart from the rest: They discover what is unique about each person and then capitalize on it.

If you are a manager or team leader, read this article. It's long, but well worth the time. Reminds me of an editorial I wrote a while back for our e-newsletter (I just posted it here for those who missed it the first time around). It seems so basic, yet so few managers get it right. But those who do, reap the rewards. Go for it.
