Target Your Management Success

Target Your Management Success - Success is not random

Management success is not random. As we enter a new year, this is a worthwhile reminder.

If you are a manager reading this post, I encourage you to create a plan of how you want to and will be more successful this year. In this ever changing economy, this is an essential career management strategy.

A plan is a target. I heard it once said, "Most people aim at nothing and hit it amazingly well." 

Management Success Planning
Need some help?  I have compiled a list entitled What I Wish Every Manager Knew.  Feel free to use this list as your checklist of knowledge points and capabilities. Access here 

Ask yourself these questions:
1. What do I know? What do I need to know more of or about? Do I have knowledge gaps?
2. What am I doing? What do I need to start doing?

In the spirit of helping, I invite you to use this site to support you in your quest. Check back here regularly for new lessons/podcasts and something new at this site - Mini Courses via podcast.

Additionally, you may want to consider performance coaching.  You can learn more at this link - Performance Coaching
