Happy last month of 2022! As you come into year end, it’s time to focus in on reflection. This year has consisted of various challenges, opportunities, and transitions.

Let’s get into a few ways to be prepared for Year End.  

Truvelop Tip: What kind of Manager do you want to be in 2023?

2022 challenged leaders in new ways – retention was a top priority all year, burnout continued to impact teams’ productivity, and organizations continued to navigate a post-covid workplace. As a Manager, you influence up to 70% of the employee experience (Gallup).  By taking your newfound skills and strengths into the new year, you can ensure that your team has their best year yet. But first, let’s reflect on what kind of manager you want to be in 2023: 

Manager as Coach: As a manager, one of your greatest responsibilities is to coach and develop your team.  As a coach, you share real-time feedback to reinforce the right behaviors and develop any behaviors that can be improved.  Looking for additional guidance? Check out Coaching Best Practices 

Manager as a Servant Leader: For many, work has not slowed down after the Great Resignation.  What can you do to best support your team? How can you help remove any obstacles or barriers to success? How is team recovering after work? Try encouraging a strong work-life balance to prevent burnout and to maintain a positive manager-employee relationship.  

New Manager: New to being a manager or just looking to revamp your leadership competencies heading into the new year? The Manager Resource Center is a great place to get started.  From Proactive Management Cue Cards, to videos on How to Have a Difficult Conversation, the Truvelop team is here to help you lead with confidence.  

We hope that you and your team have a great close to 2022!
