37: Defining Your Management Style

I’ve found that most teams don’t often enough pause to reflect on or evaluate the success of the work itself. There is so much to do, that we just keep pushing forward without pausing to ask how we’re doing and if we should keep going. In this episode, I outline four approaches to evaluating your teams’ work.

Key Takeaways:

  • Management style is how you approach your responsibilities as a manager – everything from how you make decisions to how you allocate resources and workload to how you communicate.
  • Management style is based on three primary factors: (1) your personality and preferences, (2) your values, and (3) what you’ve learned works well to achieve the outcomes you desire.
  • Understanding your personality and preferences will help you understand how they are expressed in your style.
  • Clarifying your values will help you be intentional about the behaviors you encourage in other and yourself.
  • Intentionally adopting tactics and approaches you’ve learned through external sources (books, podcasts, TED talks) and personal experience (prior managers, observing other managers) will also make you more effective.
  • No single management style is perfect because no one style works for every team member.
