would like me to set out small goals for myself and complete the tasks that she assigned to me one of a time prior to taking on other projects and moving to fix something else. She challenged me to apply this very same mindset when it comes to managing my current team. There are couple associates that I found quite challenging to manage as when I start requesting them to do a task, I would receive a lot of push backs from them and then start telling me about one issues after another that are overwhelming to fix at once. With my boss suggestions, I started to ask them to do one thing at a time and remain focus so that we can generate results. My senior manager is very effective at sharing with me his management style and what he expects from my team. Conversations with him made me realized that although I might not like the role that I am in right now, I have a good understanding of what I need to do in order to excel in the role and get to the next optimal step that I needed to be.
