Here are some great tips from our colleague Keziah Marie Heynsbergh, Senior Exhibition Administrator - Construction Portfolio who has recently become a people manager in our business.
- Never be afraid to admit that you don’t know everything – This is not a sign of weakness! It’s just another opportunity to learn something new.
- Communication – Never assume everything is going well and everyone is happy. In our weekly catchups, I start by giving each team member an opportunity to share challenges they’ve faced that week and where they are at with their work. This is where I listen to them and find out how we can help each other resolve issues and learn from each other’s experiences.
- The importance of delegating – Delegating work gives my team the opportunity to try something new, test their own skills and also shows them that I am confident in letting them handle the task.
