slide 4:

• “Management always takes credit for my/my team’s ideas when talking with higher-ups.” • “I feel like I don’t have the support of management when I’m looking for opportunities to grow.” • “I can’t stand the constant micro- managing.”

slide 5:

• “I feel like I’m just a cog in the machine.” • “My management is never around. It’s like I report to a ghost.” • “Management expects us to do miracles but they’re never willing to dig in and help.”

slide 6:

• Get involved with employees and understand your team’s daily work so that you can better anticipate their needs. • Be personable and think of your employees as colleagues rather than people on a lower job tier. • Motivate rather than intimidate. Offer empathy and support during tough projects and long days.

slide 7:

• Listen as much as possible to understand others’ perspectives before making any final decisions. • Don’t play favorites. This can be difficult when you have a range of personalities and job performances but strive to remain objective. • Invest in your team. Help them go for their career goals rather than holding them back.

slide 8:

• Manage your time so that you have time available to support your team. Don’t fill your day with back-to-back meetings. • Make sure your team always has the supplies it needs. Pens notebooks anti-fatigue mats or even bathroom soap can make a huge difference when you spend most of your day at work.
