Don’t blame, own.
As a manager, it’s all too easy to abdicate responsibility and blame the person on the other side of the table when they are not doing as well as you’d like. The fact is that every person you manage is different. Just because one management style worked with the previous three team members and not with the person in front of me doesn’t make it their fault.
Constantly check yourself to make sure you’re taking ownership of the relationships in your team and do everything you can to make things better. If you have any trouble identifying these, go back to step one and ask for advice from your peers.
