Three Ways to Be a Better Manager To Your Staff

Management is very important part of business development. Many companies close their doors because of the bad management. The main reason people quit from their jobs is because of bad management. The number one reason is people have a stress in work because bad management. Three ways to be a better manager.

Respect Your Staff 's Opinions and Ideas.

We all came from different walks of life. Your staff are also seen and experienced different things that your did not experience. The arrogant person is the one who don't respect others opinion. You don't want your staff think you are arrogant. If they told you an idea that you did not like,  you can tell them why you refusing their idea in very respectful way (tell them why that will improve the communication between you and them). In return, they will respected and happly do it your way because your respected their idea. If you are rude to them, you lost. They will think your arrogant, and they will never come up with idea that one day can make you money or improve your business. Today the staff  has a bad idea, but tomorrow he will tell you a million dollar idea. 

 Focus On End Result of the Goal or Task not How it is Done. 

For example: you have two staff and you told them in end the day you want tasks A B C D to be finish. You should not make it a big deal who does A or who does B. Or they are finished D before they finished B. Staff One did part of A. Staff Two is  doing other part of A.

Your job is to manage them to finish the four tasks correctly in end of the day.  If you are going to manage every small thing, your staff think your bossy not manager. Give your staff some space do their work, you hired them because they are experience in what they are doing, so why you are bossing them on small things care about the end result.

 Take the Good and Bad no One is Perfect.

No one is perfect including you. Why you are criticizing their imperfection and  you are not perfect yourself?

For example, If your staff is good salesperson, he sold hundreds of your inventory, but he has flaw. Why you are focusing on flaw and not looking for the good stuff that he is doing to improve your business. If his flaw is not hurting the business or his work why are focusing at it.

 I understand if his flaw is hurting the business is a different story. Even his flaw is effecting the business, your job to help him to control it, manage it, or simply let another empolyee to do the task instant of that empolyee.

You should look at your staff as whole person. If his good qualities are more than his bad qualities, you have a good employee.
