5 Monthly Questions to Help Your Managers Grow as Leaders
Too Long; Didn't ReadTransitioning from managing individual contributors to managing managers requires a shift in your leadership approach. To help your managers succeed, ask them five essential questions each month: 1) What concerns did your team raise last month and how did you address them? 2) What was the biggest impact created by your team last month and what contributed to it? 3) What behaviors are making employees stick together, and what's pulling them apart? 4) What issues, conflicts, and disagreements got your significant time and attention? Why were they important? 5) What were the key takeaways from the discussions you had last month with stakeholders or other cross-functional leaders/managers, and what was your biggest learning? These questions promote learning, reflection, and growth in your managers, ensuring they lead effectively.
