What is management? How can we get better at managing? These are the question we are going to address in this blog.
Management: – The process of dealing with or controlling things or people.
This is the general definition of management but is it enough to just know the definition, from here we will take about how we can make our management better or in other words rules for effective management.
1. Being consistent is the key.
Our managing style must first be consistent before it can be called effective. This means that we cannot discourage and penalize one individual while rewarding another for identical behavior when it occurs. We should also treat all members of our team equally since this demonstrates our objectivity.
2. Being clear about what we are communicating.
We must guarantee that our language is correct, clear, comprehensive, and concise while interacting with our team. This is the most effective strategy to eliminate misunderstandings and keep our team on the same wavelength.
3. Hard work should be recognized and rewarded.
One of the most important motivators is the recognition of good effort. When members of our team do well, we should recognize their efforts to gratify them and demonstrate to the rest of the group that time and effort are rewarded.
4. Transparency is expected.
Becoming a transparent manager demonstrates our honesty and fosters trust among our team members. Lying or concealing facts may have an impact on our connection with the group as well as their respect for us.
5. Being a good example for the team.
Being a manager somehow doesn’t allow us to avoid completing any work. In the alternative, we must approach our work with seriousness since people look up to us. They will not treat our position seriously if we do not.
6. Being organized.
Being organized in our work might be the difference between finishing a task on time or missing a deadline entirely. It also aids in the advancement of communication between us and our team, resulting in increased productivity and a lowering in occupational stress.
7. Make sure employees enjoy working.
Removing the clothing code or putting a TT table at work isn’t the only option to make our workers’ workplace more fun. We may even surprise them with dinners and meals. Employees who like their jobs tend to perform better.
Effective managers understand that among their most essential responsibilities is to win the trust of their workers, colleagues, employers, customers, and other stakeholders. They also recognize the need to develop organizational structures and procedures that foster trust at all levels of the company. They understand that trust is essential for managing everyday encounters as well as starting change in the organization and responding to emergencies. Most crucially, according to ethics expert LaRue Hosmer, they acknowledge that individuals in companies are concerned with “what is right, just, and fair as well as what is efficient, effective, and practical.”
