Much has been written about the secrets of good management and few will argue that the best managers are inspired, visionary, dedicated, industrious, energetic, energizing and display integrity, leadership, common sense and courage. So where is it that managers commonly fail or falter and lose their precious foothold on the corporation's top rungs? The following, from the career experts at bayt.com, are ten of the most basic management traps and tips to avoid them:
Weak managers set weak goals
Weak managers micro-manage - effective leaders inspire
Weak managers are afraid of hiring/cultivating strong leaders
Weak managers belittle their employees
Weak managers have obsolete skills-strong leaders constantly reinvent themselves
In today's knowledge-driven economies and highly competitive environment, skills, training and education rapidly become obsolete and effective managers know that they must constantly re-educate themselves and update their skills to maintain an edge. While over-confident managers with an inertia to further education fall by the wayside, good managers regularly take an honest inventory of their skills and abilities and upgrade their technical knowledge and soft skills wherever appropriate. They encourage their teams to do likewise with sound career planning and performance appraisal programs and an emphasis on training and self-education.
Weak managers have poor communication skills
Weak managers blame
Weak managers take full credit for their team's accomplishments
Weak managers thrive on bureaucracy
Weak managers are divorced from their teams
