Today I talk with Nick McCormick who is a delivery manager for an IT services company and who has written a great little book on tips and practical advice for managers called Lead Well and Prosper. What I loved about this book was the realism...he talks about moving from mediocre to great!! Nick and I discuss
- Is management as a skill in crisis?
- The importance of managers having a realistic look at their own development and skill level.
- Why is management so difficult?
- Tips on moving from reading about management to becoming a better manager.
- How change is uncomfortable.
- How to make time for development in your busy schedule.
- How power does not come from a title
- What would be the best tip that Nick could give to improve your management skill?
- How it is not difficult to stand out as a good manager as there is so many mediocre ones out there!
