I believe it all starts with understanding your own natural management style, and choosing the style to move toward.
The performance you’re getting out of your team should be the desired performance. When that’s no longer true, you can adjust your management style to bring those results closer to your goal.
In most cases, you can break down any management style into five categories; • Manage
• Support • Elevate
These five styles were picked by an HR company that wrote an article around them, asking other companies how their own methods fit in, and what performance results were achieved.
