Shortcuts for Smart Managers
IN THIS SUMMARY
Being a manager is never easy. Not only are managers responsible for every decision they make, they are also responsible for everything their people do. They are expected to support, encourage, motivate, and to model and demonstrate good practice day after day. And, they do not have the safety net of sharing responsibility with the team, because they are the team leaders.
