First-time manager: Start by learning

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

When you start your first job as a manager, don’t rush in and begin changing everything. Instead, get in learning mode, writes Dorothy Tannahill-Moran.

  • Learn the job and what you’re expected to do. Get to know your boss and her expectations inside and out.
  • Assess the politics. Politics are a part of every workplace, and you must understand them if you want to succeed.
  • Build relationships with people above, below and around you. Meet people at all levels throughout your department and the organization as a whole and start to build relationships with them.
  • Sign up for formal management training. You can always stand to know more, so get some books or sign up for a class or a webinar.
