Management is known as a form of art and a science. The idea behind good management is making your employees more efficient and productive, while finding the best way to do it. When preparing to manage one, or a group of managers, you are preparing them to be able to manage their own employees. Every manager has a different personality type and learns differently. With some tools and tips, you can help them become great managers that will continue to grow and succeed with their new teams.
Grooming a New Manager
Bringing in a new member to the management team is never easy. If you hire from within, they have to learn to transition from their previous position to this new one. If you hire from outside the company, the new employee will have to be taught everything from scratch. But with a little patience and open communication, you can groom your new manager for success in their position.
Set Specific Goals
When training a new manager, one of the first things to do is to establish what goals you and the manager want to achieve. Ask the manager what they want to accomplish and find ways to work together to reach it. Set goals that are realistic and can be achieved by the employee in a reasonable amount of time. Be specific about what you want them to achieve and note the progress you want to see from them. The more detailed plan they have, the better equipped they are to know what is expected of them.
Common topics to include when setting goals:
- Become familiar with the office area
- Find ways to improve productivity/reduce errors
- Improve manager skills and duties
- Become familiar with all employees
