    7 Steps You Can Take to Make Your Team More Productive

    What Works for Your Team?

    As a first time manager, you have a lot to learn about leading and managing your team.  A LOT.  Unfortunately, the one thing I see new managers overlooking time and time again is that you have a whole team to help you in that process.  The team knows the work that is being done, the work that needs to be done, what works and what doesn’t.     When I became a manager for the first time, I wanted to do everything right.  I wanted to hold the right meetings, the right...Continue reading
