It's impossible to manage "people"; it's only possible to manage individuals.
What works with one individual may not work with other individual, manage individuals the way that THEY want to be managed, rather than the way that YOU'd prefer to be managed.
Following are the three questions you should ask your direct reports if you want to manage them as individuals for greater results.
- How do you prefer to be managed?
- What can I do to help you excel?
- What types of management annoy you?
