11 principle elements of a good manager

There are many perspective to view someone as a good manager. The following 11 principle elements of a good manager are listed in a management course I've attended, which I find the list is a good measurement as well as direction.

  • Know yourself and seek self-improvement
  • Be technically proficient and know your job well
  • Seek responsibility and take responsibility for your actions
  • Make sound and timely decisions
  • Set the example and be a good role model
  • Know your people and look out for their well-being
  • Keep your workers informed
  • Develop a sense of responsibility in your workers
  • Ensure that tasks are understood, supervised, and accomplished
  • Train as a real team, not just a group of people
  • Use the full capabilities of your organization by developing a team spirit
Good manager are made, not born. Therefore, we should develop ourselves to be better and better.
