If you are an entry-level manager, you might be feeling a bit lost about what skills you need to polish and emphasize in order to be a good manager for your team.

Skills Great Mangers Have

Following are the 4 skills that all great managers have. If you can enhance and polish these 4 skills, you are guaranteed to be a manager who is respected and who can get work done.

Great Managers are Detail-Oriented

If you want to be a good manager, pay attention to detail, focus on things that get missed at first glance, and encourage that perfectionist streak you have in you. Great managers are always detail-oriented and this means they understand all procedures and systems around them.

Good Managers are Adaptable Managers

Good managers are comfortable with uncertainty and unpredictable situations. They are equipped to handle all kinds of emergencies, and this adaptability makes them good problem solvers as well. If you want to be a great manager, make sure you are adaptable, and that you don’t lose your footing in the face of uncertainty. This is the most important managerial skill to have today, when everything in the global market is rapidly changing and evolving.

Creative Managers get Work Done

Be curious and innovative when it comes to work. It is good to respect rules, but you don’t always have to play by them. Find innovative solutions to unprecedented issues. This will also encourage your team and peers to approach problems and roadblocks more creatively and with more innovation. Not only will this increase efficiency, it contributes to a great work environment as well.

Be a Manager who can Work with Ambiguity

A good manager is not afraid of ambiguous situations, and can make plans and decisions immediately with whatever information he has as needed. Depending on the situation, quick thinking and working with whatever resources are available is the marker of a great manager.
