Unforgettable Information Technology Manager Job Description
You can learn how to be a manger from reading good management books but to put that into practice is whole other story. We have learned from experience from running very high profile projects that people handle stress very differently. There is a frequent debate which rages on in the management community about if leaders are born or are they made. This is a separate topic for discussion in another article but this is something that you should keep in the back of your head about your own leadership traits. The fundamentals that we discuss may seem a bit obvious and some which do not. We feel that we have to bring awareness to these topics because we have seen time and time again, managers not living up to their expectations.
Explain. Remember that you are never unquestionable. People are sure to support you more if they know you are right rather than have you telling that that you are right without giving them reason to believe you. Let everybody in on a discussion. Tell everybody what you are doing and why. Justify your general manager job. Be Flexible. Be open to newness. Show that you are open to change as long as it is a change for the betterment of your work as a team. Follow these steps and there are few who will have any reason to not accept you as their General Manager and a respectable one at that.
Stress on Details. Think and think again about every strategy. Think in the minutest details, of every pro and con that a strategy might result in. This will help in making the best decisions and your extent of study will win people's confidences in you as a general manager. Express your Values. Let people know what you stand for. Make your ideas very clear. More importantly, make sure that your ideas are worth standing for. Win the support of everybody around you by letting them know that you have the same priorities that they do. Let them know that you are one of them. This will help minimize ego issues and promote better understanding between you and your colleagues.
