What I want to do with my Blog is mainly to inspire Managers to Reclaim their power, Make a difference and Have Fun!
I loved being a Manager for 20 years, but I know that I’ve underestimated the impact I had on my employees’ life as a whole.
If the managers are good at engaging their team, the employees will have meaningful days, full of interesting challenges, learning, creating, having fun and interacting with uplifting teammates. Or, if the managers are lacking in that area, the employees will probably feel that their doing repetitive tasks and being totally drained of energy at the end of the day.
Ask people who have a Bad Boss how it affects their overall life…How it affects their family when they come home at night…
You will then understand how important being a good Manager is to so many people, not only to their immediate employees, but also to all the people in those employees’ life.
Furthermore, the way the Managers inspire (or lead) their team, has a direct impact on the kind of experience a customer (internal or external) will have while interacting with a member of that team.
Unfortunately, even though they have this big impact on so many levels (including the company’s bottom-line), most of them are left alone to figure it out (often having been promoted Manager without proper training).
And so, because I have this tremendous respect for Managers, I’m hoping to be able to help them be the Best Boss that they can be, regardless of their circumstances, or the politics and rules of the company they work for.
Because of that passion that I have for Management, I read a lot about the subject, and I intend to share with you all the best ideas that are out there, in the best books (or Blogs) on Management and Leadership.
Over the years (as a Manager and as a Coach) I also have created many Management tools, and developed plenty of crazy ideas, that I can’t wait to share with you.
I also want to give you everything that I’ve learned recently, that I so wished I had known when I was a Manager, and by doing so, save you from the mistakes that I’ve made.
I want to be clear and concise because I know how busy Managers are, but I also know that, because you‘re so busy, it will be practical to have someone reading for you and giving you fresh food for thoughts.
