Becoming a manger in the beginning is hard work on its own but making sure that you remain in the manager position can be a task all in its own. You can always make sure you are striving to become a better manager and a manager that is respected by fellow employees and manager or vice presidents who have decided you were the right candidate for that position.

Suggestions and tips for becoming a better manager will be elaborated through this article.
First you need to acknowledge that you were not put into a management position because someone wanted to be nice to you, they are giving you an opportunity to show your potential for being useful to the company within that position.

A good manager needs to come to the table with a lot of confidence in their abilities. If you do not trust yourself and to know that you can do this job and will be a great leader, people will not follow you. You need to make sure that you are working on showing people why you are amazing and to have people follow you to lead the company in the right direction.

Accept that as a manger you will make mistakes. Nobody in their careers is perfect and making mistakes is the way you learn within your job duties. By knowing mistakes will happen will help you to approach the situation differently the next time, instead of doubting your abilities try constructive criticism on yourself to also keep your confidence up.

Communication is also a huge aspect of being in a manager position. How else can you be certain to keep your employees on task? How about working on making sure people know what is expected of them? Communication helps to ensure deadlines are met and that people are able to have a company that comes with a secured foundation that always delivers consistent results. Use all the forms of communication that you have from emails to person-to-person contact. Hold weekly meetings to gain updates and to keep people in the loop.

Along with communication is learning to listen. The best and most affective managers understand the value of listening. By listening to fellow employees does not mean you need to have the knowledge of everything in life. Different people bring different experiences, by having so many different circumstances help you to gain more experience and how to handle different situations.

Besides the suggestions and tips listed above another great quality needed as a manager and that will also help you to strive to be a better manager is by making sure your staff or fellow employees know they have your support and confidence in them as a team. Most people don't intentionally come to work with the desire to do a poor job, however there are those employees that sometimes need and extra push to reach their potential, as a manger you should take an interest in these employees. If employees don't think you have any interest in them or their job they will switch off and do just a standard job instead of reaching above the normal job functions. This requires extra work on your part but in the long run will help build their confidence and then with the improvement of work function will help to boost your confidence because your potential for managing employees is being reached.

Managing cannot be looked as a side note to your job functions already it should be one of the higher priorities if you plan on creating a company that is going to be successful and one that many other people will really be able to respect!
