As posted previously, I’m about to take on a role that is managing a team. It looks like I will be responsible for 12 but directly managing 5.
This is not my natural skill set at all but my Dept Director boss is fully aware and supportive and there is a very comprehensive Mgt program within the org I am going to.
I know some of you are managers and I’m keen to learn. On top of this, I’m heading into a role that I have not done before ( purely commercial but relying heavily on my procurement and IT contract skills).
I’m really keen to rise the challenge but it seems a huge step up for me and will involve a lot of extra hours, impacting family and training time.q
I know I have to listen listen listen as a Mgr and give my staff the latitude to do their job well.
It’s the things like managing diaries, monitoring progress, resolving conflict I could use your advise on.
I’m all ears
