One of the advanced training topics that we cover as part of our Telecom Consulting learning program is management skills. These are not just talents that allow someone to succeed in a managerial role; the ability to allocate resources, or oversee projects from beginning to end, positions us to thrive in our personal lives too.
Being a good manager is about more than just knowhow though. For those who seek to earn a supervisory role, there are personality traits that should be cultivated as well. These are a few characteristics we look for in Telecom Consulting managers:
• Enthusiasm for Their Work: Well-liked managers like what they do. Not only does this give us a passion for our work, it also encourages us to continually learn more about our industry. Inevitably, this enthusiasm and habit of learning rubs off on everyone around us.
• Standard of Excellence: Part of leading by example is expecting just as much from ourselves as we do from those around us. By setting high personal ideals, and holding ourselves accountable to them, we model the behavior we want our team members to emulate.
• Humble: The best example we know of for humility is giving credit where credit is due. Our managers always talk about triumphs as a group effort.
By teaching these skills we ensure that our team members make effective managers. Find out more about our training program by following Telecom Consulting on Twitter.
