In any management role there are a few key skills that are important for a person to be a success. Over the longer term, a good manager has to not only deliver targets laid out from his or her own management team, but also inspire the staff under their control to deliver consistently and to a high standard. Without hard work, dedication, humility and sacrifice a person won’t be cut out to be successful as a manager in any line of work. The skills listed below are transferable between any managerial roles, within any sector.
Be an Effective Communicator – All good managers have to be able to get the point they are trying to make across as clearly as possible, in the fewest steps available. Being a clear and direct communicator both verbally and in written form is an asset that helps individuals become better managers.
Good People Skills – The best leaders are those that are intuitive around people and understand those that need an arm around the shoulder and those that need a prod in the right direction. Maximising individual performances will help the wider team reach targets and goals over both a short and long-term. A good manager will also help to develop individuals through training and suggestion.
Solid Decision Making – All managers will face a multitude of decisions on a daily basis. Being able to methodically work through options in a fast timeframe, and make decisions that are effective will help someone make the step up to the next management levels.
