Marketing strategy tips from Jack Ma, the benefit of being a skilled manager
Having a team member with a fully skilled person is great, but making them cooperate is more difficult to do. Imagine that you have great people to work with. However, smart people usually keep their egos along with them. They will have their own opinion and often seeing another team member as their competitor rather than supporting other ideas. If this is left unsolved and less managed, then your great team will only bring nothing.
This is where the manager role is needed. A great manager will be able to recognize their team member strong and weak points. By doing it, they will be able to acknowledge the situation that is potentially causing conflict. An earlier recognition will prevent the triggered situation before it is getting worse. Acknowledge the problem and provide a proper solution is a part of a great manager’s responsibility. It is best to put the problem on the floor and discuss it together instead of left it behind.
Actually, there will be four points of great manager duty. Those are:
- Acknowledge the perfect way to make each team member showing their best
- Always motivate each staff member to gain maximum result.
- Find a proper way to communicate with each staff member.
- Creating a connection based on trust.
Basically, a great manager does not need to be the smartest or greatest person among your team member. The most important thing is having a balanced rate between emotional intelligence and manage your ego as well.
