How to Manage Someone You Don't Like

How to Manage Someone You Don't Like | leadership and teamwork | Scoop.it

Is it possible to be a fair boss to someone you'd avoid eating lunch with — or must you learn to like every member of your team?

Martina Preece's insight:

Very insightful - especially if you `inherit' a team of people you haven't picked yourself - and helpful in dealing with what could be a problem!

Reminds me of some of the literature and reserach on situational leadership theories.

Helpful #leadership advice, especially if you are a #team #leader.

This is something that everyone I'm sure can relate to, it reminds me of what we were talking about in class about what makes a good manager.

If you’ve ever worked for a bad boss, you’ve probably uttered these famous words …. “I don’t get paid enough to put up with this crap!” Bad bosses destroy morale and employee engagement and, more often than not, they brighten up the whole company when they quit or are finally fired. So what makes someone a bad boss? Check out these 15  signs and symptoms: 

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, September 18, 2013 4:52 PM

Totally agree with John Michel's insight. 

 

I highly recommend feedback that serves, as  a tool that may help.  There are some bad bosses who may be unaware of how they are negatively affecting others. 

 

Some, not all, but some.

Sadly this is still a more common employee experience than you might expect.

Leadership is About Questions

Leadership is About Questions | leadership and teamwork | Scoop.it

Leaders who inspire appreciate and ask questions, and listen. They tend to ask “Why?” very often, along with “How could we do that?” about new ideas.


Via LouisaJRennie
Martina Preece's insight:

interesting aspect:  leadership isn't always about getting the right answers, but also about  freeing up people (and ourselves) from ingrained, habitual thinking

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:41 PM

Being able to ask questions requires good listening skills.  We were given two ears and one mouth for a reason...we should do twice as much listening as we do talking!  :)  In adition, "Asking contains the power to engage people. Good questions bring people together with a common purpose and goal. When I tell you the answer I have decided is correct, it reinforces that I am in control. When I ask you an honest question, it creates the opportunity for us to work together to recognize how we both answer it."

Eric Nolte's comment, August 21, 2013 3:12 PM
Another good listening skill I have been taught is to try and repeat what the speaker is saying while they are saying it. Again this helps focus you on what they are saying and not what you want to say when they are done.

While a leader is away, how does the team react ? Do they stand around waiting for instructions like the herd of buffaloes or do they distribute the responsibility amongst themselves like the Geese ?

Not a new concept at all, but it reminded me of what leadership and high performing teams are all about.   I've done my job managing with my team  when I can leave them  without worry, knowing they will get on fine without me.

John Michel's curator insight, July 22, 2013 7:34 PM
The best business leaders need to be firm, decisive, sympathetic and forward-thinking, and it can be hard to strike a balance. People often think that they will be good leaders, but for many senior managers it is often the one area where they are actually really bad. Effective leadership isn’t as easy as it looks and few of us are naturals. But effective leadership can be learned.
