5 Skills every Mnager Needs

Posted By APSO, 16 May 2014

5 Skills Every Manager Needs




According to the New England College, modern managers need to have these five skills to succeed and given today’s staffing environment, these speak directly to us too:

     Evaluating the complex business environment

Less than half of CEOs believe that their companies are prepared to deal with the ever-increasing complexity of business and that investment should be made into understanding the threats and opportunities the changes present.

 

2.   Cultivating strategic thinking and innovation

Only 26% of Millennials believe that business leaders effectively foster innovation and yet 2 out of 3 consider innovation a key attractor when considering employment.

 

3.   Managing projects effectively

Not enough companies achieved their organisational goals in 2011 and largely in part to the inability to manage costs and resources effectively to ensure profitability. Risk management, especially in turbulent times, is a critical component in project management.

 

4.   Managing change and uncertainty

Quick decision-making is the most critical factor in succeeding through change, with high performance organisations 54% more likely to respond to change through rapid, yet considered, decision making.

 

5.   Shaping the organisation’s future

Encouraging innovation and rewarding creativity leads to engaged employees who look for opportunities, rather than excuses, in dynamic business environments. And with just 1 in 5 companies rewarding this creativity, you have the opportunity to attract future leaders into your business now.
