Do you manage people in your current job? Are you in a leadership role? Or are leadership and management something that you would like to do in the future? If so, I want to make this website your most important resource. I would like to share the learnings that I have accumulated over the years with you in order to help you through your journey. Whether you are early in your career or have a good deal of experience, I believe you will find my posts, challenges, and ebooks valuable.
The main difference between leaders and managers is that leaders have people follow them while managers have people who work for them.
As I kick this blog off, I would like to share some of the topics that I plan to cover. Here is my initial list of topics – in no particular order:
- Sharing your vision
- Setting and managing to goals
- Taking over a team
- How to manage your time
- Managing with data
- Work from home
- Global teams
- Managing cross-functional teams
- Driving change
- The right amount of process
- Finding the right people/hiring
As you can see, there are some meaty topics. I see most of these addressing both leadership and management. I expect some or all of these to end up as multiple blog posts.
Each blog post will be structured in a way that makes it easy to understand and turn into action. I first summarize the topic. I will then provide a few things that you should take away from the post. This will be followed by my guidance, some examples, and conclude with useful tools and tricks.
I would love to hear from you now and along the way. To get this started – what do you think of my list? Are there particular topics that you would like me to cover first? What did I miss?
