A primary role of management is communicating effectively with your team. Tom is management at his company. He is working on a deal with a senior manager and two junior level managers. One of the junior level managers is not performing to expectations. So far Tom has only vented his frustration regarding the poor performance of this team member to his senior manager. However, Tom doesn’t realize it is his role to manage the junior manager. Tom needs his junior managers to buy into the deal. What can Tom do? Build a relationship with his junior managers. Communicate regularly to his team and convey expectations. Take the lead to help make the team understand that they have to work together to get the job done. Motivate and communicate. Recognizing your role as problem solver, relationship builder, and communication leader are essential when for building an effective team.
Management = Communication Leader
