009: This Is The Most Important Management Lesson I Was Ever Taught…and It Wasn’t From Business School

Season #1

Episode 9: This is the most important management lesson I was ever taught…and it wasn’t from business school.

Here’s the deal: Your own people have likely made plenty of mistakes.

In fact, they are probably making mistakes right now. And I guarantee that they’ll continue to make mistakes into the future. Just like you.

So - where you can - try doing this.


To the ambitious new manager, the big question is this:

What does it take to be a great manager?

Well, great managers know how to motivate and build a great team.

Great managers know how to win trust and respect, make an impact and achieve their goals.

And great managers get promoted, again and again. And they make more money because of it.

So how do managers like you, who are bootstrapping your own careers, join their club?

That is the question, and this podcast will give you the answers.

My name’s Michael Barrell and welcome to Making a Manager.
