014: 5 Ugly Mistakes Every First Time Manager Makes - Are You Guilty?

Today, I'll be breaking down the 5 ugly mistakes that first-time managers often make.

Here's what you can expect:

  1. Micromanaging - It's more harmful than you think.
  2. Lack of Communication - The glue that holds teams together.
  3. Avoiding Difficult Conversations - Necessary, though tough.
  4. Not Providing Feedback - Essential for growth and improvement.
  5. Failing to Lead by Example - Your actions speak volumes.

I'll dive deep into each mistake, offering practical advice on how to sidestep these common errors and truly shine in your role.

Remember, this isn't about blaming or shaming. It's about learning, growing, and becoming the best leader you can be.


To the ambitious up-and-coming 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.
