PEOPLE MANAGEMENT for new managers


Being expected to manage people has to be one of the most daunting aspects facing new managers in the workplace.

People are unpredictable.

People have emotions and feelings and they cannot all be treated in the same way.

This makes people management complicated. Furthermore, new managers are often faced with the difficulty of having to manage a team that used to be their peers and this can make the transition even more intimidating.
