If you have recently been promoted to a management position, then there are a few things that you can do to improve your management style and have confidence in the way that you are handling your employees: Know the Rules and Expectations The first step to effective management is to completely understand the rules of the organization. Ask for an employee handbook or a copy of the written rules that need to be enforced. Study these rules so that you can easily understand whether or not a particular behavior is appropriate or inappropriate. Also, it necessary to completely understand the work requirements and tasks that each employee must complete. It is impossible to manage an employee if you don't know what their work requirements are. Be Consistent Consistency is key, especially if you are managing multiple employees. Once you understand the rules and expectations, be firm in enforcing those rules. If you start to bend the rules for one or two people, you will likely find yourself in a position of weakness and the employees will lower their respect for you as a manager. Kindness Goes a Long Way Showing respect and kindness for the employees that you manage is a good way to foster a positive environment, and your employees will likely show you respect in return. When this positive environment is created, you will be happier and more satisfied with your effectiveness as a manager, because your employees will be obedient and respectful of your role. Let your employees know that you appreciate their work, and refrain from any behaviors that will demean them. Occasionally situations will occur where it is necessary to correct or counsel with an employee, and during these times you should never yell at or bully the employee. Remind Yourself of Your Qualifications If you are doubting your ability to manage your employees, then that lack of confidence will show through in the way that you talk and interact with everyone else. As a result, your employees may unknowingly lower their respect for you as a manager. Taking some time to remind yourself of your qualifications and skill sets will help you to remember why you are in a management position, and this thinking will help you to be more confident in your interactions with other people. Practice Making Decisions Managers always face situations where important and quick decisions are needed, and if you waiver in your ability to make those decisions it will likely decrease your confidence. Don't be scared to ask questions of other people if needed, and then make a firm and quick decision once you have all of the information that is necessary to make an educated decision. Be Willing to Take Risks When a manager is willing to put their neck on the line, it will show their confidence and experience. Even if you are a little nervous about a project at work, throwing yourself into the situation 100% will help you to show confidence to other people who are involved.
