Global perfect manager characteristics and social behavior in corporate world
1: Real people person not machine:-
Company is nothing only a group of people and we are looking for managers who like people. You should be comfortable with conflict resolution. You should know how people work and know how to motivate your team. If you are better with computers than people and understand windows and linux better than English, you are not a good fit for our managerial team. We may, however, have an opening in our Communications Services Center and suggest you send us your resume/CV via email. A good sense of humor is also a must-have attribute to lots.
2: Be positive visionary:-
Can you see the future? We need managers who can identify the next product or service that will be in demand and bring it to life. You should be goal oriented and effectively use your resources to “create the unusual.” If your definition of “visionary” is the ability to see out a large picture window in a corner office, you would be wise to envision your career with another company.
3: Must be a good communicator:-
You should be able to communicate effectively using all methods, including visual presentations, public speaking, email, teleconferencing, and face-to-face. Good communication is a two-way street. You will be required to routinely update your employees on their and the team’s performance. You will communicate any feedback from upper management and customers and provide status information when asked. Employees will provide feedback via a process called “Rate your boss,” which will enable managers to improve their performance.Good communication does not include shouting, cursing, throwing a fit, threatening, or any other form of physical or verbal abuse.
4: Must be technically proficient:-
You don’t’ need to be able to code in html or Java , but you should be able to give technical guidance and decide the best strategies and methods for success. And no, having watched Happy Feet or the March of the Penguins does not qualify you as technically proficient in Linux or windows.
5: Employees’ needs first:-
We need managers with a selfless attitude who are willing to fall on their sword (figuratively not literally) to meet the needs of their staff. Climbing the corporate ladder should come second to the needs of those working in the weeds. The philosophy a company is that managers must be succeed best by satisfying the needs of their team.
6: Must encourage team work :-
Teamwork is important for any company. Not only are you required to encourage the best practices for building teamwork, you are considered a part of the team. In fact, now this days , there is no traditional office space for managers ; you are required to sit and work with your staff. You will be assisted by a secretary who will provide secretarial services to all team members, not just to you. Just for the record, we do have doors on all conference rooms and bathrooms, but using either as a permanent office is considered “unacceptable behavior.”
7: Leading with example :-
All managers are required to dress and act professionally at all times and to be available to give guidance and help when needed. Leading by example means working late and on weekends with your employees, parking with your employees, and using the same washroom as your employees. It’s all about doing instead of pontificating — and doing the right thing. We consider leading your team off a cliff the wrong thing — misguided lemmings need not apply.
8: Treat your staff like professionals :-
You should have the confidence in your team’s proficiency to decide most issues by themselves with only your guidance, as required. We treat every employee as a professional who doesn’t need immediate supervision. You will be looking over your workload and not over your employees’ shoulders. And isn’t that a comforting thought.
9: Encourage professional growth :-
All managers are expected to grow their skills and those of their team members.Do some thing special which is “Be more than you are.” No, that motto is not displayed outside the company cafeteria. Another of our mottos that encourages professional growth is “Keep moving forward” — and it is proudly displayed in the cafeteria and on the dashboard of all company vehicles.
Bonus criteria of a perfect manager ” Do something special “
Satisfying all the above criteria is not enough. You are also required to do something special for your employees that:
Will be remembered fondly decades from now.
Can be shared by the entire group.
Won’t break the budget.
Maximum companies believe that life is too short not to have a little bit of fun along the way. Most of our lives are spent sleeping, followed next by time spent working. We therefore require our managers to create an atmosphere of fun (in the workplace that is, not in bed). A good manager is also in the memory creation business. In the big scheme of things, a manager who doesn’t create happy memories is a failure in the game of life.
Perfect ness has no particular measure in work place such at one company, my team and I had the privilege of interviewing the applicants who wanted to be our next supervisor. I emphasized that I expected our supervisor to be available to help in any way he or she could to meet our team’s objectives. Somehow, that requirement was lost after the hire. I attribute this to the swelling of the head and the pressure on the prefrontal cortex that often results from landing a managerial position.
