Work more effectively with your subordinates ...

The Managing Others Profile

 

As a manager of others, you are accountable for "flexing" to their behavior styles. This work book equips you to do that.

   

Each of your subordinates is a different person. You need to assign them work, help they develop their skills and abilities, manage their performance, provide feedback on a regular basis and intervene when their performance or poor interaction with others requires it.

The Managing Others Work Book

Most managers have very little insight into how to flex their personal behavior to maximize the effectiveness of their interaction with each of their subordinates. . We learn to manage others implicitly, during our careers, from watching other managers, and being managed ourselves. As a result, we are often confused about the best way to work with a specific subordinate, especially when we find that some of the things that we do that work with one people do not work well with others.

"Managing Others: The MO Profile" addresses this issue. The work book gives each of us insight into the two most important behavior patterns we need to be an effective manage. It collects 8 Competency Areas from the Four Core Competency Styles® Work Books and places them to the managing/supervising others context.

The MO Profile work book is designed as a self contained learning experience for an individual. It contains everything you need to gain insight into the way that you behave when managing others.. Simply start at the beginning, answer a short set of questions, score your results, read what they mean and finish by completing a set of exercises that will help you transfer what you have learned back to the job.

Your results are summarized on two profile pages.

Once you have compiled your personal profile, you go onto applying each of the 8 Competency Areas to each of your subordinates, using observation guides described in the rest of the work book. You receive guidance on the best way to interact with each of your subordinates. If you follow these suggestions, you will develop the "smart habits" that allow you to flex your personal behavior to match the behavior style of each of your subordinates.
