“On the 1st day of Christmas a Manager said to me…
I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S EXPECTED OF ME!”
🎄🌟(Sing along to the 12 days of Christmas song!) 🌟🎄
For smaller fast growing companies, this is usually because they simply haven’t had to think about it before.
For larger companies it could be down to lack of development planning around the transition from role to role.
If you're the Manager that needs clarity, take the lead on this. Approach the/your boss and ask for a conversation to help define your role and what is expected from you.
If you're the boss, take time to consider the key things you want from your line managers and ways you can support them to learn and grow in the role. (Keep it simple, focus on the top 3 things to start with and set milestone review dates to follow up.)
🎄Keep a look out for further days of Christmas to help develop Manager skills! 🎄
