We live and work in a fast-paced, ever-changing, highly competitive world. Maybe there was a time when process and productivity ruled, but these days, you need to be flexible and adaptive (all the while being productive and compliant). Whew that’s a lot to ask!
As a boss, you’ve got to prioritize your projects, your team member’s projects, and your own managerial time. Once you figure out the most important needs and projects, you need to take action. Sometimes this means you might need to delay finishing a project because an employee needs critical coaching. At the end of the day, you can’t be a great boss without a great team.
You need to give your employees the resources necessary to do their jobs as well as clear guidance, structure and coaching. So invest the time in your employees and you will be amazed at how much your team as a whole can really accomplish.
