…because some thoughts are worth remembering

On Different Management Styles


As a manager, I strive to maintain and nurture several “gears” or styles of management. “I tend to be a detail oriented person, so I know how to be a micro manager,” I responded to my staff when I started my job. Then I added that I prefer to identify a shared vision and chart out the map together, each playing to their own strengths. “So, I hope I don’t have to be a micro manager.” There were still some puzzled faces, so I ended with, “You get the management you deserve.”

(It was also a come back line for my friend whose husband was complaining about her nagging him.)
