Managers & Supervisors - Learn Techniques To Improve Your Relationships With Your Employees
Everyone has their own ideas about what makes a successful leader successful. Or what separates a great manager from one not quite as good. That's because there are many ways to lead and manage successfully, so it's hard to identify one or two things that make a huge difference. Then again, it's what makes this field so interesting.
One aspect -- the way managers, supervisor, leaders and executives, interact with and listen to those around them seems to be more common in successful people, and much less common in those managers and leaders who are less effective.
We've outlined the basic concept, which we call RESPONSIVENESS, so you can learn both the attitude and skill to forge lasting, loyal relationships with peers and employees, while at the same time contributing to employee engagement.
What You Will Learn About Management and Leadership
Some managers are able to build rapport with their employees, and inspire great dedication and loyalty. That tends to increase productivity and morale. Other managers are less adept at this process.
Written by consultant and and author Robert Bacal, The Responsive Manager Helpcard helps managers and supervisors become better leaders and more effective managers by explaining what sets apart the unrespected manager from the respected leader.
Here's a quote from the actual card:
Successful managers and leaders become and remain successful by creating trust and respect between themselves, their staff, colleagues and their own bosses.
They do this by acquiring and using a set of skills, attitudes and abilities that are called "The Responsiveness Skill Set". The responsive manager is able to lead more effectively, because s/he is perceived as concerned about the welfare and success of others.
