On today’s episode we talk about IT management, what makes someone an effective leader, and strategies for improving your management skills.
Being a manager isn’t just about setting strategy and giving orders. It’s about relationships and communication. We delve into how communication preferences affect managers and their reports, how management style can affect employee motivation, when to include subordinates in decision-making, and more.
Joining us to share their management experiences are David Kaiser, Service Delivery Manager at Akron General; and Tony Lupis, Network Engineering Manager at FactSet Research Systems.
