Management Values

I believe my success as a manager can be summed up as being:

     
    Accountable - Take responsibility for results and hold myself, peers, and direct reports accountable for achieving established goals and objectives.
    Customer focused - Clearly communicate how to achieve stakeholder and customer expectations without over promising. I understand the cost / benefit ramifications of said recommendations to stakeholders and customers.
    Results driven - Willingly establish and apply performance measurements. I set stretch goal for myself and direct reports as necessary to achieve customer and business expectations. I believe in the old saying "work hard play hard".  I will make sure my team have a positive work - life balance and get some life out of life.
    Open and effective communicator - Create an atmosphere in which high-quality information flows smoothly through the organization and to stake-holders in a timely manner. I encourage the open expression of ideas and opinions, creating an open and inviting communication atmosphere.
    Effective manager of talent - I hire "T" shaped individuals based on talent, how they fit the team dynamic, visionary cues, and the their ability to see beyond the blinders. I strive to bring out the best in my team, regardless of their current performance levels.  I delegate authority and responsibility to others, allowing them to use their abilities and talents effectively. I give feedback, coach, and appraise my team at every opportunity; every week, if not every day; not just at review time.  I respect differing opinions and views of my team.

These competencies embody a few key points of my management style, in addition to the six traits listed above, I am:

    Respectful - Treat individuals as professionals and address them with appropriate respect. I am not out to make myself look good, but to help my employees execute their responsibilities well, and yes, to build employee confidence.
    Natural mentor - I am a coach that finds deep joy in helping my employees grow their careers and execute at a very high level. I focus a lot of effort on employee growth paths.
    Emotionally intelligent - I am direct, yet compassionate and tactful.
    Able to see the big picture - I look out not only for my team, but for the larger organization and company.
    Decisive - I will make hard choices quickly and recognize there may need to be course-corrections along the way.
    Life - long learners - I seek feedback regularly from peers, direct reports, and their managers and have a passion for improving myself.
    Teammate - I come from a sporting background, so I mentor and lead my team towards that metaphor.  A cohesive group that is willing to support and fight for each other.

I care about my team mates and work hard to help them succeed and grow. The results are that my teams are more loyal, successful, and effective.
