Do you need a better way to manage your team and help them succeed without micro-managing?

When you were promoted to a manager role, you were excited about your new responsibilities. You thought it would give you more control, freedom, and flexibility.

Instead you find yourself working harder and less satisfied than ever and taking your unhappiness home.

Your team seems unengaged and doing little more than checking in and out each day and show few signs of developing. You’re not sure what to do and find yourself either micro-managing or doing work they should be doing instead of doing your own.

You could replace the people on your team, but that is expensive, time-consuming, and risky. You’re pretty sure there’s a better way, but haven’t found a resource that helps you get the results you’re looking for.

The secret to being an effective leader with a strong team is building trust-based relationships.

Sounds too simple, right? But here’s what a lot of managers miss:

  • You shouldn’t treat others the way you want to be treated, you should treat them the way they want to be treated.
  • Any person can be successful once you understand their core motivations.
  • Trying to understand why someone’s performance is struggling and addressing the core issues is significantly more effective than coming down hard on people.
  • Systematic mentoring can keep everyone on the track to success.
  • Each person is unique and needs to be managed likewise. 

Negative reinforcement will never work and positive reinforcement will never, by itself, create the change you’re looking for. The secret is building trust.
