The Biggest Mistake Managers Make

The biggest mistake that managers make is believing that their primary focus is on managing and “getting in line” their team members (generally called “subordinates”).

As a manager your primary focus should be on managing one’s self. If you can’t manage your behavior, biases, beliefs, and time, then how in the world do you think you can manage one, ten, twenty, fifty, or more than 100 other people?

Great managers lead by example.

A company’s culture and environment is shaped by senior management, and it funnels down and throughout the company. Toxicity (just like a healthy work environment) starts from the top.

If you’re stressed out you will most likely take it out on others, and the vast majority of the time it won’t be a leader who you report to, but rather someone who reports to you. Your behavior is your responsibility and if you can’t manage it properly then what kind of leader are you?

At the beginning and end of each day, the buck stops with you. You are the captain and if the ship goes down, you’re responsible for staying behind with the vessel. not abandoning it with your crew still aboard.

If you’re always late don’t expect your team to be on time or early.

If you’re rude to other team members or to clients, don’t be surprised to see your team behave the same way.

If you produce substandard work then don’t place higher standards on your team.

If mediocrity is acceptable to you then it will also be accepted by your team.

Managers must bear the responsibility of first and always focusing on self-management, and through your mastery you can then be the best managers for your team.

Thought of The Day: Now is the Time!

“Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.”

~W.E.B. DuBois

Don’t wait for tomorrow to come because although there’s a great probability that it will, you have a fifty percent chance of not seeing and experiencing it.

What tasks and projects are you procrastinating on that you can actually work on today? What goals are you hiding from because you’re afraid, that you could take the first step towards today?

What potential customers, clients, and vendors are you missing out on thinking you can pursue building those relationships on another day?

Ready for a promotion or pay raise? Then go ask for it today.

Tomorrow isn’t promised, so get up, get out and do something…TODAY!

What’s Missing From Your Business?

You work five to six days a week and your cell phone and email have become an extension of you. Your weekends seem shorter and you’re secretly envious of your social media friends and their vacation and staycation posts, workplace fun pics, and other exciting news that they regularly share. You’re focused on the daily “grind” of helping your company fulfill its mission and vision, but something is off. Answer the questions below, honestly:

  • Is there anything that seems particularly difficult right now in your business or daily work grind?
  • When you look around the office or listen in on conference calls, do you see the look of passion, zest, and excitement on the faces (and in the voices) of your team members?
  • Are managers stressed out or energized?
  • Is employee turnover low, high, or at a decent level?
  • Do you and your team members come to work early and leave late, or do you show up late and leave early (or mentally “check out” early)?
  • Do team members hang out and associate outside of the office?
  • How often does your team spend quality time with the senior leaders of your company learning about their passions and their desire for the team to reach organizational goals and milestones?
  • Do senior and mid-level leaders within your company ever “walk the floor” connecting with team members (including frontline) to see how they are doing professionally and personally?
  • Does your company have a focus on helping employees reach career goals?
  • When employees are terminated is the process ruthless and cutthroat? Does the process resemble a trip to HR followed by the infamous “your desk has already been boxed up and security will escort you to your vehicle”? Or is there a level of care and concern for the employee and the impact that their departure will have on the rest of the team?

If most of your responses were less than flattering (or downright negative), does it feel as though something is missing from your company, like the “magic sauce”? What do you think is missing?

If most or all of your responses were flattering and very positive, what’s the “magic sauce” that your company and its people possess? Why do you think others companies don’t know about or use this “magic sauce”?

This week we will be discussing this in greater detail and would love to engage in a dialogue with you. Please share your insight and thoughts with us in the comments section below this post or share them in the section below. Thank you!
