Fundamental Management Activities
Three fundamental management activities matter for all managers, but they especially matter to new managers who are just beginning to establish their reputation and prove their skill at leading others. We know from thousands of manager training participants that the best managers are good at communicating, organizing, and guiding.
Three Fundamental Management Activities to Lead Like a Pro
But how do these three capabilities translate into the day-to-day interactions between a new manager and their team. Let’s look at each aspect of a new manager’s role and what it takes:
The first of the fundamental management activities is to be able to use their communication and relationship skills to get work done through others.
The second of the fundamental management activities is to know how to prioritize activities so that the most important work gets done first.
The final of the fundamental management activities is to care about their employees and earn their respect and loyalty.
The Bottom Line
First-level managers and supervisors are on the front lines interpreting and implementing the plans designed by those in the C-Suite. Without the fundamental management activities of communicating, organizing and guiding, many top-level strategies would go unfulfilled.
