Since 1989, I’ve had the honor of coaching thousands of managers globally. Of course, every manager possesses their own personality, talents, skills, goals, and approach to managing their team. I’ve been able to identify the seven, most common types of managers, so you can self-assess and uncover the areas to focus on that will make you a world-class, resilient leader and coach. Which one best describes you – or your manager?
With all the effort managers put forth in a valiant attempt to create a thriving company culture or salvage a once positive work environment, at the core of every healthy or toxic workplace is the boss, manager, or supervisor. All roads go back to the manager. And if the manager isn’t willing to change, then, in the end, nothing will, especially your company’s culture.
As we’ve come to realize, people don’t leave companies. They leave their managers.
And when it comes to managing a remote team for the first time, it’s more important than ever to self-assess and identify the areas you need to let go of, the new skills and mindset to develop, and most importantly, the critical conversations you must have with your team so they can thrive in today’s remote workplace.
Great leaders make their people more valuable every day.
What follows are the seven types of managers that exist in every organization. As you read through each profile, be mindful of the attributes you possess, the skills and mindset you need to develop, and the limiting beliefs or habits you need to relinquish that are holding you back from living your greatness.
