Top 10 Qualities for a Manager’s Career


By Christine Bourne

Managers are expected to be a cross between superhero and saint most of the time, bringing their team to work in harmony together and resolving any potential issues while delivering their responsibilities on time, on budget, and to a superb standard.

Many companies offer people management roles when employees have proven themselves through great delivery of projects or a long-standing record within the company. While this is a fair way of rewarding longevity and good service within an organization, it doesn’t always mean that people with strong managerial skills are appointed to run teams effectively.

The following manager skills can be identified as the ten most significant attributes which every great manager should possess, in order to get the best out of their team and provide a supportive, productive and positive environment within their organization...

  • Team Working
    It may sound odd, but the ability to work as part of a team is as or more important for a manager than it is for the team members supervised by them. Effective team work involves a huge range of skills from approachability right through to planning skills, and the ability to get on with people who work with you on a day to day basis is absolutely critical for a manager to succeed.
  • Communications Abilities
    Clear communication is the cornerstone of any successful team, and the manager has a strong responsibility to lead by example when it comes to enabling an open and accessible working environment.

    The ability to speak to your team well, bringing them along on your journey through each task and change in the organisation reaps huge benefits by promoting motivation within the team, encouraging openness and letting each member of your workforce feel valued, understood and listened to.

  • Patience
    There’s no doubt about it, even the best manager can find his or herself feeling taxed and jaded by frustrating colleagues, situations or company legislation. A healthy dose of patience will support you to handle mishaps or issues as they arise with a calm approach, stopping you from losing your temper and enabling you to think objectively about your next steps without succumbing to frustration and anger.
  • Understanding
    The ability to put yourself in the position of the people whom you both manage and work with is critical if you want to promote an amenable working environment. Often, when you first consider a situation involving another person, it can seem that they are simply behaving in an unreasonable manner for no reason.

    However, by thinking things through from their point of view, it’s sometimes possible to understand the motivation behind certain behaviors, and empathize with how the situation arose in the first place – leaving you ideally placed for resolving it.

  • Time Management
    It goes without saying that being able to manage your time effectively is critical for a management role, in order that you deliver well to your clients’ expectations and deadlines.
  • Positive Thinking
    Management can be tough, and having the ability to laugh in the face of adversity and understand that things can only get better will work wonders when it comes to boosting the morale of your team, and having the ability to come up with new solutions.
  • Planning Skills
    Effective planning is critical for detailing the responsibilities of your team and working out your delivery schedule over the future months. Having a strategy which enables careful planning of milestones supports productivity, and means your team will always know where they stand.
  • Motivation Skills
    Being able to get your team in a great place for committing to tasks through motivational support is imperative for any productive business. Having a strong attitude and inspiring your team to feel the same pays dividends when it comes to delivering great projects on time, and to specification.
  • Influencing
    Knowing your stakeholders and being able to influence them in positive ways supports you as a manager to gain what you need from the business, and your team, without having to compromise. Brushing up on your influencing skills can work wonders when it comes to ensuring you and your team work in harmony with the people around you.
  • A Sense Of Humor
    Arguably the most important skill to have for any manager, a sense of humor can carry you through the tough times, laughing in the face of adversity and encouraging your team to do the same!
