If you ask recruiter one thing that is among the most detrimental for any organization, perhaps the answer would be an employee with negative attitude and gradually spreading it among the others. The recruiters look for people who exhibit a positive orientation. These people can make the best thing in a worst form.They always complain about small things and are mainly very insecure in their work areas, also don’t do anything willingly and neither give their best performance .They become the disturbing agents and create the working atmosphere very pathetic to work. Hence positive individuals are in great demand.
A chief trait of an efficient manager is to manage the work efficiently and without stress. The manager is expected to be accountable for his team’s performance and no doubt there will be instances during the work that call for on time target completion, delivery in short period and many more such jobs requires a manager to keep his cool and guide and motivate the team to pursue the goals timely and efficiently. This also calls for the manager to be emotionally stable and come out of the pressure with flying colours.
An effective manager needs to be confident in his decision making adaptable in his approach as famously said different strokes for different folks. A better manager is very clear in his approach and finds the roots of confidence inhis knowledge base and the self-motivation he has for accomplishing the goals.
A successful manager is one who knows how to delegate the projects and tasks or else the job becomes very difficult to complete. The manager needs to be able to delegate the tasks according to the need of the hour and the ability of his team members. Proper delegation leads to timely completion of the job and also adds to the motivation of the team members.
