We talk about characters and skills of a manager, organizational behaviors, advice for new managers, and tips on managing technical talent.
Management 101 starts with a foundation of management in general, including organizational structures, addressing problems, incentivizing employees and teams, skillsets managers should have, and personal characteristics that help you be a more effective manager. We talk about issues that new managers face, including how to have more effective meetings, tips to delegate better, and the role of integrity and ethics. We also talk about managing technical professionals, including the concepts of empowering your employees, defining expectations, and getting more value out of annual reviews and written policies.
