Did you ever plan to be a manager?
Or are you an accidental manager?
Technically brilliant (or at least, very good!!) at almost everything it takes to run your business or do your job.
Everything except for the HR and people management "stuff".
Do you ever wonder why others make people management look easy, when you are finding some of it really tricky?
Managing teams can be harder than it looks
You’ve tried being nice, but team members seem to take advantage or walk all over you.
You’ve tried being fair, but someone always seems to feel hard-done-by – and often that someone is YOU.
You’re scared that if you do the wrong thing, or say the wrong thing, there could be serious consequences for you and your business.
You have no idea what HR policies you really need, or what should be in them. Perhaps you have nothing, or maybe you have a huge list of HR policies, but no-one ever uses them.
And you really do want to be a good employer or manager, but you’re not sure what the magic recipe is for keeping your best employees happy and working for you long into the future.
So what's the magic recipe?
Well, it starts with being really clear about what good HR and people management is, and how the right approach will make your life easier, keep your employees happy and make your business more profitable.
Knowing what you stand for, and what you don’t.
Understanding how to get 80% of your team management results from 20% of your effort,
by knowing which things to focus on daily, weekly and monthly to get your team firing on all cylinders.
To instantly recognise the signals that tell you to tread carefully, and to know when and where to find help.
To know which conversations to have and when and how to have them.
And to understand that the role of a manager is to support every team member to be the very best they can be.
This is what great HR and great people management looks like.
And if you notice, all these are things that you – the accidental manager – can control.
If you don’t have time to manage a team because you’re too busy doing the day job, then understand this.
If you have a team, managing people IS your day job.
If you want to be a better people manager, feel in control of your team, and feel confident that you are saying and doing the right things, no matter what challenges they throw at you,
You’re in the right place.
HR shouldn't be a headache and it shouldn't be a hassle. The right HR strategy will transform your business.
