04 Aug Quality of a Good manager
Guess what is the number one quality of a good manager according to Google’s 10-year study?
Google spent a decade researching and gathering data to define key behaviours of good managers.
These behaviours include:
Empowering your team, avoiding micro-management, having a clear strategy, being a strong decision maker…
However the number one trait on Google’s list is…
“Being a good coach”.
I would definitely agree with this.
It is easier said than done though. How would you define a good coach?
Some ideas to start with:
Being conscious to make yourself present in the moment to provide coaching, on a continuous basis
Avoiding solving every problem but turn those into coaching moments
Providing coaching to all employees, not just when they are behind but also… top performers
