7 Ways to Successfully Manage Managers
14 Aug 2021
Managing managers can be similar, in some ways, to managing a team — you need to align priorities, communicate goals, provide feedback and serve as a mentor. But the difference in managing managers is that you have to not only oversee their work, but make sure they’re effectively supporting their teams too.
In addition to ensuring that managers are producing quality work, you’re setting clear expectations for what a successful manager looks like, observing their leadership within a team and offering direct feedback on their management skills.
A successful manager is one who guides their team to perform well and develops them in their career path along the way. Managing managers to reach that success is no easy task, but it’s one led by training, mentorship and empowerment.
