What Is Your Management Style?

Leijun Campbell - Friday, May 06, 2016

If you’re the owner of a small business, chances are you manage a team of talented, but sometimes very different, people. You want everyone to succeed, but you also want to establish the way in which you encourage this success.

 

Management Style

 

Here are a few management styles that you can use for your team.

 

1) Authoritative - Depending on the industry in which you and your team work, sometimes you need to be more strict as a leader to make sure your company's tasks are accomplished. You provide clear instructions to make sure every team member understands their part and the best way to succeed in their role. Your assignments have firm deadlines that allow the business to run efficiently.

 

2) Coaching - You focus on measurable goals for each team member and personally meet with them to discuss how to accomplish work-related tasks and to grow in their role at the company. When discussing mistakes and concerns, you try to acknowledge the consequences of the team member's actions, but also find a way to implement constructive criticism and positive reinforcement.

 

3) Collaborative - You enjoy hearing feedback and ideas from the people on your team. Your internal meetings focus heavily on brainstorming strategic endeavors to best reach your customers or clients. You try to offer as many opportunities as possible for innovation while still keeping all parties on task and moving the business forward.

Summer Business: Enjoy the Weather & Keep Your Entrepreneurial Focus

Leijun Campbell - Thursday, May 28, 2015

We hope you had an excellent Memorial Day weekend!

 

If you didn’t take an extended vacation this week or don’t have one in the near future, you’re most likely watching the summer unfold outside while you sit at your desk catching up on email with possible beach envy directed toward some of your coworkers’ Facebook/Instagram/Twitter accounts.

 

However, there are several ways to both enjoy the weather and summer vibes AND be productive in your business this season.

 

1) Leave your office for your lunch break: Whether you’re walking down the street to your favorite restaurant or making a trek across town for a lunch meeting, find a way to incorporate the sunshine into your calendar. If you choose the latter, try finding an outside table to enjoy with your prospective clients or customers. A little Vitamin D with a sandwich and iced tea is always good for the soul and business deals.

 

2) Open the blinds: If you’re in charge of an office of employees, don’t rely on fluorescent lights and computer screens alone. Invite the summer sunlight to join you and your employees/coworkers by keeping the blinds open (and the windows too if it’s not too humid). Last year, the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine discussed the benefits of keeping workers near the windows.

 

3) Take walking staff meetings: Don’t keep the weekly office gathering confined to the conference table this summer. Find a park nearby with a 5-10 minute round-trip walking distance and take your employees for a few laps. Record the meeting with an iPhone or smartphone and email it out to everyone as an mp3 as soon as you get back. Your employees will be able to stretch their legs and be more alert to pump out a few more winning ideas for upcoming projects.
