What qualities people appreciate in their managers?

    How many of us would like to be a good respectful manager of the group? If you answered with an "yes", then this article is for you!
    I would share few ideas what people are expecting from good managers and you can check how many of them do you have.

1) "My manager always listen and care about what I am saying", - that's one of the phrases we met among  many employees who had good ratings for their managers.
     It's so important to people who work in your company to be noticed. They feel their importance if managers pay attention to what they say. Moreover they appreciate the ability of manager to understandб feel compassion and be involved in the discussions. We noticed that usually, employees come to their managers in case their really feel the topic very important for them. If it's not- they try to handle it by themselves!

2) "My manager is sincere  and direct", - that is another characteristic that many employees like in their managers! Sincere creates clarity in communication, provides transparency in the company and people understand easily what is needed to be done! There are no games or intrigues in such companies. They are crystal clear about expectations of the managers, about what is welcomed to do and what is not. Clarity also reduce the level of conflicts between the members. They know what are the priorities of the company, they understand if company's policy is aligned with their personal values and as a result if they will feel happy in the company!

3) "My manager is given me periodically feedback and also supportive advises, so i feel that I am growing and developing", - that is another critical factor that many employees appreciate in their managers!
      To provide a feedback periodically means, that you care about people's performances and want to prevent problems before they appear. That helps to have a better atmosphere and relations in the company!
      To provide just feedback is not enough. If the feedback will be very negative, some employees could be very effected by that and disappointed by themselves. What's important to do is also to give some advises what could be improved. That means you believe this person is able to succeed, he needs just to adjust a bit his activity.

4) "My manager is competent and understand how to organise all operational processes in the best way", - says many employees, who admire their managers.
    Employees know, that being an expert in one field is important, but for an excellent organizational functioning  is important to know how all the processes works and choose the best scenario for long prospective. Managers that know this, are considered professional, confident, good decision makers and organizers. They  receive all respect and trust from their employees.

These are the most common criteria we found. Would you like to share other ones, that you believe make a manager appreciated by it's team? It will be nice to read in the comments and may contribute with interesting information to a new article!

The habit of being thankful for people that make my life lighter and more successful!

It's super important to acknowledge people that contribute to your development and achievements! That is why I would like to thank people periodically for who am I today!

Jian Reza - is my teacher of Swedish courses. She is amazing, super energetic and very fair person! I feel our group very lucky that we have such a teacher, because It's super interesting to come for dynamic lessons (by the way, our lessons are almost half of the usual working day) and learn by discussing new concepts of Swedish society! She also sometimes organize our visits to museums or libraries and help new comers to integrate faster! I am very thankful for her energy, help to be included in society and her fair attitude to everybody!

Tetiana Siianko - is first person who believed in me and made me part of interesting project in Sweden "Startup Weekend", where I was able to connect with a lot of interesting people, mentors and super active young entrepreneurs. She is also an awesome example …

Thanking the ones, that bring the impact in my life!

Hey, periodically I write about people that I feel very thankful, because they contribute to who I am today! They make me feel happier and show me a better world and many interesting opportunities around! Saying this, I would like to  mention in this article:

1. Inna Gurinova - is one of my best friends from former colleagues, that was always super straight about things and honestly presented her point of view. She is an amazing mom and friend, ready to give you a hand of help, good advice and a doze of positive motivation! I always felt that Inna can come up with a strong opinion about things, having wise arguments behind it!  No matter how far we are now, I am always feeling very happy when we talk  or call each other!

2. Zanda Saulite - is my today's colleague from Swedish courses and neighbor. I like her critical mind and very sharp humor! Zanda always gives  supportive hints during our experience of studding new language, since she knows it quite better then me. She can als…

Trust in yourself is a habit!

Lots of people would be able to achieve better results in their daily life, if they trusted themselves! Unfortunately, in many cases we do not believe 100% that we can achieve what we want. Our thoughts stop us to succeed!
   The good news is that we can change this! Trusting yourself is a habit and could be developed through repetition! Since we feel unsure in 2 cases:
1) when we experience something for the first time, we deal with something unknown.
2) when we experienced something negative previously  and have to repeat similar experience.

For example, when you have to talk in front of the audience, your emotions defined by previous experiences. If you didn't had the supportive audience before - you will feel very insecure or even stressed. Have you ever noticed that people, that have been supported by their family in childhood, feels more self confident and sure when they talk about something or take actions? It's because they have positive experience and are not afra…
