With the more responsibility you get, the more pressure you'll face. With all these hassles to deal with, why would anyone ever accept a management job? People do it because they like to teach and coach people. They do it because they like to encourage people. They enjoy building a team and helping their team members thrive and grow. They like setting goals and hitting those goals -- not through their own individual efforts, but by supporting their teammates.

A successful manager will be good applying all of these actions and be flexible to manage the push based on the person. Everyone is different and will require personal attention by the manager.
In todays world Corporate America (Globe) is on the hook/expected to stand-up a diverse work force - think age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc.....and so you will manage a wide range of personalities from different background. From a business perspective this diversity of thought and actions will drive improved services, product, materials - will be a differentiator.
Management of the people is critical for both business and personal success.
The most successful managers, leaders, and entrepreneurs manage people with excellence as a priority. For most companies these days the most important resource is their people
- Being a manager is a blessing and a curse. It comes with its advantages and disadvantages.
- Yes, you have more responsibility, but also yes, you have the ability to delegate tasks.
- Being a manager is all about knowing how to manage yourself, your time, your tasks, but also other resources time and tasks. Because at the end of the day, it is your responsibility that the work gets done, whatever way you believe is the most efficient way to get there.
- There is no ONE way to be a manager. Everyone has got their own style, some are more comfortable being micromanagers, and being close to the tasks performed by other resources working with them, others are more comfortable being macro manager, and don't want to be involved in the details of how you get there. I think finding the right balance between the two styles is perfect, but that is up to you.
- Being a manager involves you leading the team, knowing how and when to provide instant feedback, constructive criticism about their strengths as well as development points, but you also have to listen to what they have to say, as every manager needs to know what they need to improve on for the benefit of the team.
- Last, being a manager gives you a certain level of power, the ability to lead and guide the team in a certain direction, the ability to take certain key decisions, but it also puts you in a position, where if something goes wrong, you need to make sure you are ready to take the bullet for the team, and stand up for them rather than throw them under the bus. You fail as a manager, if you don't stand up for your team when something goes wrong.
