Secrets of Effective People Management

A good boss knows that being an effective people manager is at the heart of getting the best out of employees. One thing that great team leaders have in common is the ability to engage people and instil within employees a pride for their work and their achievements.

Maintaining engagement over time isn’t easy, especially if the work is repetitive or uninteresting. However, there are a number of strategies effective managers use to get the most out of their team. 


Show appreciation for a job well done

Expressing gratitude can go a long way and managers who ensure that employees know that their efforts are appreciated are more successful than their less grateful counterparts.

Make the most of people’s talents 

People can have identical skills but obtain different results. This difference is often down to talent. Identifying what employees are naturally good at and utilising that talent can be the key to retention and engagement. For example, an employee could be good with people or have the creativity to see problems in unique ways.

Communication is Key

The best managers are also skilled communicators, ensuring that people are given clear instructions on how to accomplish a task and allowed plenty of time for queries.

Good managers are also skilled listeners, even if the employee simply needs to let off steam. Most discussions revolve around work-related issues, but the best managers won’t confine the conversation to this. Simply making time to listen is just as important as the content of the discussion.

Provide Feedback

Providing useful feedback not only helps employees to develop, it also tells them that their manager is interested in what they are doing and how they can improve. Effective managers ensure that employees know what they have done well but also understand what they need to change in order to do even better next time.

Be a good role model

Good manager’s lead by example, ensuring that they are the kind of person their employees can look up to. Effective team leaders also nurture adaptive qualities in themselves, such as honesty, empowerment and trustworthiness.

What our clients say

  • In my recent career search, I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with recruitment companies who treat the candidates like second class citizens, never returning a call or email and even worse not knowing their client, how their business works and which transferable skills they are looking for. From the moment I applied for this position Lyndsey exceeded all my expectations, it wasn't a case of sending my CV straight to the client, I received an email explaining when she would be in touch to discuss my application and actually called me to do this. Lyndsey made the whole process very clear and amazed me with her knowledge and passion for her client when we met to see if I would fit in with her clients culture. This passion she demonstrated was infectious and I was delighted to meet the client and accepted the position.

  • As with any business the right staff will make or break it, so recruiting the right people is vital. We met with a number of recruitment companies including Lyndsey who had been recommended to us via a Business Management Consultant. It became very apparent early on that Lyndsey was much more meticulous than her competitors. She made a point of delving deep into our company, the new position, the existing team and the environment into which the new starter would be coming into. We have recently awarded the position to an individual we believe to be a great asset to the company.
