Basic Management Skills
Basic management skills to help you manage the performance of your direct reports.
But don’t be fooled by the word “basic” – whether you are an entry-level supervisor, or a seasoned executive, these management skills will help you lead your employees to peak performance.
In my experience working with hundreds of managers, the great majority of them didn’t know about most of these so-called basic skills.
I grouped these skills into four sections:
First Section: Building BlocksSecond Section: General SkillsThird Section: Communication SkillsFourth Section: Specific Skills
Because each skill is a stand-alone technique or tool, you may look at each section, and decide which skill you want to learn about.
I never stop meeting "experienced" executives who don't know about most of this basic skills.
Go through them, read them carefully, study them, practice them in order to master them. And when you do - you will exceed your most optimistic expectations.
However, in order to maximize the effectiveness of this performance management model, I highly suggest you go through the first three sections in a sequential order.
This will allow you to optimize your relationship with your direct reports, to motivate them, to improve your management skill level, and to ultimately reach your desired goals on time, on budget and with the expected quality.
