Learning to Manage – new careers podcast episode

post # 302 — February 5, 2007 — a General post

Accepting the role of manager means accepting the responsibility not only for your own actions, but also for the actions of other people — which can be a scary experience. For the first time, perhaps, your fate is determined by the actions of others.

My latest podcast episode, Learning to Manage, examines the skills new managers will need to excite, energize, organize, and produce with your team.


00:55 — Managing = Creating Energy

02:28 — Require and Relate: the dual focus of effective managing

04:06 — The importance of one-on-one management

05:48 — How to engage the individual with the team

08:58 — How does the manager add value?

11:08 — 12 Questions to evaluate your management performance
