Amin deroui - self management for the manager

  1. 1. Amin Deroui
  2. 2.  Having watched many new managers over the years and trained quite a few, I know that the new manager's role is challenging. Suddenly, you have moved from being a technical or professional expert where you knew most of the answers and how to really problem-solve, to being an "expert" people manager. Well, that's what most of the people around you expect you to be – and generally straight away!
  3. 3.  Set a limit and stick to it. It's very easy to get sucked into working longer and longer hours just because you are new to the role and have so much to learn. The law of diminishing returns will start to kick in after a certain period of time at work, i.e. the longer you work, the less you may achieve. Far better to work more effectively in less hours. Be particularly careful if you hear yourself saying things like "Well, I'm only new to the role, so it's probably expected that I should take longer".
  4. 4.  Each of us has different reactions to stress. Unfortunately, when we are stressed, we often don't realize it until it becomes too late and we get ill or it severely affects our performance.  Are your thoughts more negative than usual? e.g. "I can't cope" or "I always get this wrong".  Are your actions somewhat different? e.g. Avoiding things you should be doing, or lack of coordination.
  5. 5.  Selecting the most appropriate tasks to delegateThe key to delegation is to develop within your people, the "initiative to take action" so that they learn to develop their skills and knowledge to their full potential. When your people have a problem that they want some help with, encourage them to come to you with their recommended solutions, not just the problem. If they do not have any solutions, make sure that they at least come to you with a plan of action for finding a solution.
  6. 6.  Even "Thank You's" are important. Look for the things people are doing well and praise them. If appropriate for the person, also give public recognition. Of all the motivational tools you have at your disposal, this is by far the easiest and cheapest, yet brings the biggest payoffs.
  7. 7.  In particular, talk with your manager about the three most important priorities he/she has for you in your role. Make sure you focus on these at all times.
  8. 8.  Intellectual. Regularly undertake a mind activity such as reading a good book, seeing a movie, learning a new language or starting a creative hobby such as painting.  Physical: Ensure that you have an exercise regime that keeps you physically fit. This doesn't have to be strenuous, but it does have to challenge you. Also watch your diet.  Emotional: Take care to interact regularly with the special people in your life – make time for them. Also think about building new relationships with people outside of work.
