So my focus for the upcoming week? And what I will spend the first 15 minutes of my work day on? Being a better, and more involved boss. How will I do this?
- Personally interact with every single of my 23+ staff (as Team Lead)- Often times I don't see them for an entire week, preferring to "leave them alone" and let me work my own items.
- Review their most current milestones and deliverables - I feel like additional focus from their front line manager will assist them.
- Interact with each Team Lead in my Section (as Deputy Section Lead) - As a team Lead, mentioned above, I have a few people reporting to me. As a Deputy Section Manager, I have 83+ in the form of 5 teams. I don't have a solid understanding each week of what they do. I need to do a better job.
- I'm going to coordinate the week - I'm going to spend the other first 15 minutes of my Monday and make sure I know what is due, in my Section and my Team, and let people know I'm aware.
