Managers are the lead of any business. They have the heaviest workloads. They are expected to be punctual, with outstanding management skills, with alot of additional team work and sportsman spirit. It’s especially important for managers to be aware of how they manage their time. Time management plays a very crucial role in any business or organization.

Alot of them find it difficult, those who’ve recently been promoted as a manager may find themselves struggling with their new responsibilities in maintaining the discipline of the company. They try various methods to be a worthy manager in what ever way possible. What they really need to work on is time management. To have an organized daily routine, which is also followed with honesty.

Of everyone in the organisation, it’s most likely that the manager is expected to be punctual and well organized, but it is not just the job of a singleplayer, the entire team is supposed to follow and learn to manage time correctly. It is rightly said,time and tide waits for none.
For any organization to reach to their peak. Every single soul should put in their best. No member is less important than the other and no ones time is less valuable then the others. This should be a responsibility of the manager as well as the employees working that they treat each other with respect and honor. Every individuals time is equally important and should be equally valued by everyone. Prioritising of work is different from prioritising a person’s time. The smallest of the smallest role in an organization or a company should know the value of time management and should maintain and follow a routine.
Manager finds themselves with shifting priorities and unexpected demands through the working day dealing with issues from the team can end up with other works left to pile up. This is where every individual should learn to manage time and also value each others effort put in to manage and finish the work in time. The tips that follow will help you think about tweaks you can make in your own process to be a more effective and successful manager. There are a few things to keep in mind to manage time better, and also avoid procrastination on a regular basis. Planning is one of it. Take time to make time is a well spoken line. The time we spent planning is
not wasting. When it comes to execution,planning and execution is much easier than thinking what to do next as it comes along. Having a ready to go plan is a time saviour. You have all the important things listed and you equally divide the right amount of time required for each. This way we exactly know how much time will be required to complete a job, so knowing the buffer time we have that we can play with. If we dont have a set plan, we usually end up wasting alot of time thinking what to do when, adding on to all the confusion of what order should the work be done in, all this leaves us way behind in the race and the only way to avoid this is making a plan. A manager should involve everyone, and consider everyone’s idea when it comes to making a plan. Keys to listening well include keeping an open mind and not jumping to conclusions before or during conversations. He should not discourage or put down people, sometimes even the smallest and the simplest ideas makes a huge difference. We think of good listening as something that happens between the beginning and end of a conversation: being attentive, making eye contact, taking notes, and waiting for the other person to finish before you start to talk. And those are all parts of the listening skill set that you should practice.

Communicate with every person involved in the
project, making sure they are all with you at the same time both mentally and physically is very important for a manager. Miss communication creates misunderstandings, and misunderstandings leads to a step back in any business. Misunderstandings creates space and differences between people. The working spaces gets a negative vibe is people are not in good shape with each other. Employees are going to have problems and you are going to have to help solve them. The manager should know how to maintain the peace and understanding of his employees, to be in the best side. The root causes of workplace problems often fall into two categories: personal and organizational.  These skills range from being able to mediate a personality clash between team members to building an effective human resources system for a business. Employees want to be kept in the loop about ongoing projects, goals, and deadlines, so it’s essential that you communicate well with them and inform them about goings-on within the organization.  Every effort should be appreciated by the manager, he should sometimes oversee small faults if it is not very necessary.
Employees need a balance of both praise and criticism in order to thrive. If you only give praise for good work, you’re a straw man that frustrates employees because you don’t help them grow. But only criticism and your
employees will be on-edge and demoralized. You should Know how to deal with interruptions and a set back. It’s okay to have a few bad days, you should not let down your staff members as they all believe in you and your work. You should focus on making your next move even better and stronger than before. The positivity in you will have to spread through your team members and you should motivate them to work harder and stronger.

It’s also essential that you encourage feedback and that your staff feel that they can approach you with any questions or issues they want to address, so making yourself accessible to your staff is critical.
Small things make people happy. Work is important but so is the mental health and happiness of your employees. Take a break from the hectic work, have small functions and parties, it lights up the mood and also changes the vibe of your society. Small events spreads a positive vibe in the environment, it makes people happy and happy employees give you the best results. People want to work on projects where they believe they can do well, and when they’re given the opportunity to do what they do best, they feel more connected to their work.
“Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will.” Be open to what the world has to teach you. Don’t overdo yourself, and never think too great of yourself.
You are just as anyone else. The minute you stop learning, someone else will get better than you. You should always be positive about the one who points out your mistakes. But also make sure you are the boss there and people know who you exactly are. There is no space for flakiness in a leadership role. You should know to draw your boundaries.
Whether you’re the CEO, intern, or new manager, knowing how to work with others is a key part of being successful at every job. Your team doesn’t expect you to be superhuman, so if you’re feeling the pressure and need a helping hand, don’t be afraid to admit it and if you make a mistake, own up! Your staff will look to you for guidance and inspiration, so it’s essential that you set a good example to gain their respect.
You need to manage your people in the best way possible. What it means is to develop, organize, problem solve and grow the employee side of the business. If you expect them to behave professionally and commit to their work, it’s vital that you do so yourself. Make sure that you are doing your job, continuing to develop your career and support your team in doing so too.

Keep up appearances is also an important part, you can’t dress up very casually and be extra lenient. There is a discipline that has to be maintained,
including the way you and your employees present yourself. Dressing up good boosts your confidence and also spreads a positive and a jovial vibe.
