Hi all, I have been reading through the posts on this forum and really enjoying the discussions going on.
I really need some help here on how to become a better manager and thought this would be the best place to come.
I have recently taken over a team of fairly experienced staff after spending a lot of time managing a group of Agency Staff.
I do try to be the "good guy" a lot of the time but am also aware of the policies and procedures the company requires "enforcing". I do try to be fair to all members of staff in which ever work we are concentrating on at that time but I also feel as though some DR are taking a lend.
Don't get me wrong I have a great boss who I truly respect and feel as though I can approach with any issues at all but I also feel as though I need to start turning this team around to be one of the best teams in the department whilst also keeping morale high and giving each of them a fair crack of the whip.
Work wise - I have learnt a lot from the effective use of outlook thread that is currently running as this has worked wonders for my workload I just need to toughen up (stop being so nice) but also produce results.
Any ideas on how I would go about this.
