Business Managers

Tips for Entry

Analyze yourself, or ask others who know you well to analyze you, to determine whether you are thought to have characteristics of a good manager—for example, supporting others with praise rather than criticism, leading by example rather than preaching, or not being afraid of admitting mistakes.

Observe those in a position of authority in your everyday life—parents, teachers, police officers, and others. Notice characteristics in these people that you think make them good managers.

Develop the habits of a good manager by, for example, setting goals for yourself just as you would for an employee who reports to you.

In communicating with fellow students or coworkers, practice keeping an open mind and a positive attitude in order to foster better understanding.
