You will learn:
- Manager behaviors fall into four themes: Build Relationship, Cultivate, Provide Resources, and Follow Up.
- Building a manager/employee relationship is a foundation for the other behaviors,
- Managers need to know themselves, their employees, and the organization to determine what behaviors best fit a particular employee, at a particular point in time, and in a particular context.
- The similarity between some behaviors identified in this research to behaviors previously identified as effective manager behaviors suggests managers may be able to leverage existing skills in a new way. Skills traditionally viewed as contributing to the bottom line of the organization, such as planning and organizing, may also be used to contribute to employee well-being.
