Seven Practices That Distinguish Great Managers From The Rest
There are plenty of good managers out there. They’re efficient, productive, and ensure employees meet objectives. In other words, they get the job done.
Once in a while, however, you’ll come across a great manager — one who not only supervises but leads, inspires and connects with their team on a higher level. These managers go above and beyond, contributing to their team’s success as well as the company’s.
Here, seven career and business coaches from Forbes Coaches Council share the practices that turn mere managers into leaders. Keep these in mind whether you’re looking to hire a key manager for your company or are developing your own leadership skills.
Develop Your Employees
