Having four or five staff is not hard. You don’t need to be a good manager or leader. You can muddle along.
It’s when your team starts growing past the twenty number that management becomes a skill rather than a word.
There are hundreds are articles written on the art of management, but Jack Welch (former GE CEO) broke it down to this:
- People want to know who they report to.
- People want to know how they’re being measured.
- People what want to know how they’re doing.
One boss. Clear KPI’s. Regular feedback sessions.
