The Best Manager I Ever Had
post # 202 — September 28, 2006 — a Managing post
Think back to the best manager you have ever experienced. Someone who got the best out of you, and the rest of your group, to stretch and to accomplish more, while also enjoying it more.
What did this person DO, that made them so effective in raising your performance? (Specifics, please.) What was it about them as a person (if anything) that contributed to the effect they had on you and your colleagues?
Let’s not include any generalizations, theory or principles here. I’m looking for real stories about real people.
What do effective managers actually DO that makes them effective?
