How To Brilliantly Manage Your Team
Build trust with your team for a winning culture.
If you get moved into upper management, it’s usually for a reason.
Most managers get to where they are by being really good at one special skill. Be it marketing, finances or otherwise, you were quite good at it and now you’re moving to take on other challenges. But that can often come with one big obstacle.
Learn to let go.
The problem with specializing in something and being very good at that skill is that it can be hard to trust a new team with the job you earned your stripes from. But as Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff points out, if you don’t trust your new team with a task you’ve assigned to them, then you’ve already lost that trust.
As a manager, you’ve got to:
- Trust your team
- Learn to live with the results
- Give them your full support
Trust goes a long way in business.
