A good manager knows how to communicate with their staff and is able to do so effectively and efficiently. When you give tasks to your employees make sure that you make yourself clear and everyone understands  Team builder You can put a group of people together, but that does not mean they are a team. A good manager is able to mix and match the best in order to create a cohesive unit. The best managers are able to get the best out of their employees and it is no different when it comes to team work.  Financially savvy Management is not just about the people under you. Knowing exactly what is going on with the financial side of things will ultimately make you better at your job because every aspect will be under control. As a business manager/owner you must know everything happening in your business, even if you are not managing the business by yourself but you have to know everything.  Morale booster As a manager, you need to keep the spirits up around the office. As soon as a head drops, then the work will suffer. It is vital that you keep everyone happy - there are no ifs and buts here.  Leader It is vital that you are the type of leader who sets the standard and leads by example. If employees are not impressed by how you carry out your work, then they are likely to slack off.  Promotes growth Every employee wants to improve upon their personal attributes and skills, and this can be done with the help of an attentive, caring manager. You have to encourage your staff to want to succeed, or else they are going to regress.
