The 7 Common (And Totally Avoidable) Mistakes New Managers Make

The 7 Common (And Totally Avoidable) Mistakes New Managers Make | Manage your Manager | Scoop.it

The transition to management isn’t easy. One study found it was almost as stressful as divorce.

 

No wonder people screw it up. But while “Everyone certainly has the right to screw up in her own individual way,” says Lindsey Pollak, whose new management book Becoming the Boss is out this month, there are also “classic mistakes” made by “pretty much everyone I interviewed.” Here’s what they are, and how to avoid them:

 

1. Keeping The Star Mindset

 

People often get promoted because they are awesome at what they do. But once you’re in management, “your job is no longer to be the star as a contributor. Your job is now to manage through other people’s successes,” says Pollak. This is a huge change in thinking, and unfortunately, many new managers “keep trying to do their old jobs and be a manager at the same time.”

You're an adult. You don't need a babysitter. But telling your micromanaging boss to leave you alone and let you get your work done is never going to be an easy conversation.

 

If you see that you need to improve, take the action to change right away and let your boss know that you are taking your job seriously and you are looking to improve.

 

But if your self-check comes up clean--if you are confident that your work is up to par, then it’s time to have that talk with your boss. Here's how:

Micromanaging, not involving people with decisions that involve them, and treating people like resources instead of people are certainly top ways to get your team not to like you:)

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Manage your Manager | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Tom Hood's curator insight, September 6, 8:27 AM

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

Boosting your emotional intelligence might mean you are better at your job--but what can you do if your boss or colleagues don't exhibit anything close to emotional intelligence?

 

The good news is, the situations more hopeful than you think. The bad news is, you might have to have a difficult conversation. But don't worry, we've got you covered.

Good leaders are not only smart, but have high EQ. They think about others and let reporting people know how important they are. Their passion is infectious, and emotional connection makes the day. I wish we had more of that in corporations today, where most of the labor force is disengaged, and doesn't look forward to their work day.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 6, 11:25 AM

An interesting approach to identifying leader attributes.  To apply these findings, use the purposeful leadership approach that emphasizes the themes of broad alignment, robust engagement, sustainable adaptation and superb execution.  One can clearly see these themes reflected in the summaries of comments described. The common leadership and  management concepts seen here repeatedly emerge in other work: consideration of people, structuring of tasks, managing change, and  envisioning and inspiring a sense of purpose for example...

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, June 6, 12:40 PM

Fascinating research.  Here are the main themes:

  • Leadership is about people.
  • Passion and purpose are infectious.
  • Top performers go deeper emotionally – not just caring, but personal caring.  Not just a good attitude, but giving the energy for people to smile.
