I am SUPER new to management, I’ve got leadership experience from leading teams and being a sergeant in the Marines, however management is totally different than anything I have ever done. Today, I received really positive feedback from a developer on one of my directs teams; she stated that she thought I was doing a good job with management. I certainly cannot take all the credit. Manager Tools podcasts and the book Effective Manager has had an enormously positive experience with my team. I’ve rolled out MTO3’s and have added agendas to my meetings (from the effective meeting podcasts). I am in the 6th week of MT03’s and will be preparing to roll out the feedback model soon, which I am really excited to do. I wanted to thank everyone at manager-tools for being so awesome and I look forward to being able to attend one of the conferences soon.
