LAUNCHED! The Managing Made Simple PodcastFeb 28, 2023
Calling all managers, team leaders, and folks who think they might manage someone in the future...
How are you doing?
We hear all of the time the saying "people don't leave companies they leave managers," and even if we agree, it sure puts a lot of pressure on us as managers.
As a manager myself during the first few years of the pandemic, there was a lot of conversation around wellbeing and burnout, but not a ton of conversation around managers having to be in the thick of figuring all of it out, being equally scared or overwhelmed or unsure or unmotivated but having to keep a solid foundation and sense of normalcy for their teams.
> People were wondering how to give hard feedback without hurting someone’s feelings.
> They wanted to know how to have an effective career conversation.
> How to manage a former friend or peer without it being awkward.
> Ways to strike the right balance of being in the know while not being a micromanager.
> Or how to scale their own impact and career while supporting the aspirations of their teams.
So was I.
And as I looked more and more for information and resources about how to navigate all of the different sticky situations managers were encountering, I found that there wasn't really a conversation about the good, the bad, and the ugly about being a people manager.
So I decided to create one.
