The Skill I Needed At My First Promotion - Barb Buchman, Task Lighting

Oct 11, 2017 4:34:09 PM

Logo_tasklighting.jpgThe business skill I wish I had for my first promotion was how to be an effective leader to build a high-performing team.

For those like me who take on a managerial role while still relatively young, it is important to know how to effectively work with your team to achieve your goals. You could be in a position where many on your team have been there much longer than you, and yet you are the leader. I learned quickly that there are many ways to accomplish a goal, and it was not always the path I had envisioned.

Listen to the experience and ideas of those on your team, especially if they have done their jobs for a while. Learn from them, as you also incorporate your ideas into the mix. You may find that when you question why something is done a certain way, the response is “we’ve always done it that way” versus a compelling answer. That's when you need the skills to respectfully challenge that position to arrive at a productive outcome.
