Starting a new role in a company as a manager of a team can be a huge hike from what you are used to. Being a manager is a starkly different job role to working within the team and you will find that during the first few months of being a manager you have no idea what you are doing.

But fear not, because we have a list of helpful hints and tips to make sure that you are able to be the best boss you can possibly be this year and win your team’s affection.

Good skills and knowledge to share

The first thing which can be incredibly useful for anyone in a management position to do is take a few courses in management and in business to learn some new skills which can be shared with your team. Taking a masters in management can be the ideal way to really learn what it is to manage a team effectively and you will be given the experience and knowledge you need to take back with you and share with your team. Your team look up to you and you will be a big inspiration to them, so being able to teach and guide them in their career is a gift you shouldn’t take for granted.

Time for your workers

You have to make time for the people in your team. Your workers aren’t just numbers on a register, they are real people who are trying to make a living and a success for themselves and for their families. As a manager your job will be to make sure that your workers are always happy and that they know you care. Take time out of each week, even if it is only ten minutes to speak to each worker about their current projects, how they are finding the work and whether anything could be improved. Staying in the loop with your team is helpful because it allows you to keep them happy. Happy workers work harder.


Patience is a key trait to have as a manager because you will be in a position where you have a full team to manage alongside your own tasks and things can go wrong sometimes and people might make mistakes. Remember that mistakes are a part of human life and you don’t know what your workers are going through in their minds and bodies. Never shout if you can ask what’s wrong. Be a kind leader who is patient and listens.

Trust in your team It is important as a team working together that you have a strong sense of trust between you. This works with you trusting them and them trusting you, and you must be sure that you trust your workers to get on with a project in their own way. No one likes an overbearing and nagging boss, so simply sit back and let your workers do their work, and they will come to you if they face any issues.
