Challenges and Concerns – Produce Extraordinary Teams
As managers we are responsible to make and fulfill promises we cannot fulfill alone. It’s all about building an excellent team, perhaps a great team, and satisfying the customers for the promises of our team. Excellence in team performance opens career possibilities for our team members and our selves.
Where do you learn the Profession of Management?
The challenge faced by many managers is the lack of proper preparation for the role. Too many of us are promoted because we were a top performer. But the role, skills, conversations, and responsibilities for being a manager are almost totally different from being an expert performer. It’s all about our team, not about what we know or can do. It’s a new horizon of challenge. Most experienced managers don’t have grounding in the profession of management to enable their careers to go beyond their experience.

The Effective Manager Manages Promises and Value
Management is not just a role of being the expert, nor is it just giving orders and direction. It is a profession of people skills, of getting your people to give their best, cultivating high performance teams, honing your leadership skills, and preparing for your career path of being trusted to make even bigger promises and create new value.
The profession of management demands of us that we generate authentic commitment to the promises of the team and organization, that we coordinate action to create success, that we manage breakdowns well, and make trustworthy promises with our teams and fulfill them.
