Be a Source Of Knowledge

A boss who’s focused on improving their managerial skills is the kind that workers will respect—and want to emulate. Stay abreast of management trends so you can continue to bring out the best in your team.

Work Together On Deadlines

Some managers accept or create unreasonable expectations on performance without checking in with their workers, thus causing stress.

A good manager should talk to their employees and ensure expectations are well thought out and feasible before being defined.

Stop Micromanaging

Some leaders get too deep in the details around how the actual work gets implemented, but implementation belongs to the employee.

Provide accessible and regular oversight for the work to be produced—but don’t micromanage our produce it yourself.

The Wallflower
The Wallflower

Wallflowers are the individuals who prefer to be alone rather than in a group setting. Some wallflowers are hard workers, while others can get a little too comfortable in their quiet workspace and lose productivity.

For the most introverted workers in the office, providing a quiet, productive workspace will help raise their output.

The Achiever

Achievers are organized, reliable and consistent in their work performance. Achievers don’t need as much supervision as other work personalities.

They need opportunities for them to advance their goals, encouragement on their opinions during team meetings, and to be pushed with challenging roles and projects.

The Bum

Bums are the workers who initially started out as achievers but somehow fell into a slump.

They may socialize more than they work but tend not to cause any workplace problems due to their low impact.
