A Managers Employee Impact

I really believe in the significant impact a manager can have on the lives of the people they are responsible for leading. The training, coaching and guidance provided by a successful manager leaves an indelible mark on the business and professional lives of their employees. Management is a “trust” position. the manager is entrusted with getting important work accomplished by effectively leading their teams. The manager’s employees are trusting them to provide the guidance and development needed.
Unfortunately, I have observed many newly appointed managers see their move into management as recognition of their stature and not as accepting an important responsibility. The impact, for better or worse, that a manager has on the business unit is the single biggest factor in attitude and performance. This responsibility should be treated as a granting of trust. This is not to be taken lightly or as some victory lap in a new managers career.
