Executive Leadership Tips For Managing Multiple Employees

One of the most important roles an Executive Leader plays within his or her organization is managing staff. If you are at the Director or Manager level, you may often be required to oversee multiple employees – a task that some can find daunting. Here are a few tips to help you successfully manage your team:

  • 1. Get Organized – When managing a team of employees with a range of strengths and weaknesses, managers can often lose track of which projects and deadlines they assigned to which staff members. In order to lead effectively, you should employ strategies that will keep you organized and thus better able to gauge each employee’s progress and ensure that deadlines are met. One method is to create a reliable and easy-to-search system for assigning projects. For example, if you find yourself assigning tasks via email, consider establishing a template for your subject lines, such as “[Employee’s Initials]: To Do (deadline) – [Project Title].” This will help you easily sort the projects you assign to employees, as well as the date that you expected each project to be completed. When it is difficult to sort through the hundreds of emails in your Sent folder, having the search function look for either initials (to remind yourself what a single employee is working on) or the words “To Do” (to get an overview of what all employees are working on) can be very convenient. Additionally, creating folders for each staff member and immediately placing task-based emails into their folder will also give you a go-to resource that you can look at whenever you’d like a quick snapshot of an employee’s projects without having to search.
  • 2. Encourage Mentorship – Often, one employee will have strengths and skills that another lacks, and vice versa. Be sure to encourage your employees to share tips and learn from each other whenever possible. In addition to expanding the existing skill base of your staff, this also fosters team spirit instead of rivalry. When you communicate that this behavior has top-down support and also commend employees who take the time to help each other, you will find that many staff members will want to participate. This will make your team stronger as a whole.
  • 3. Cultivate Leadership – Sometimes, an employee will distinguish herself from her colleagues through advanced skills, dedication, organization, a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and/or leadership. When such an individual becomes part of your team, it is important to cultivate her leadership potential. If she works well with others and has performed exceptionally on tasks, you may want to consider making her the lead on a few projects to gauge how well she manages her fellow employees. If she handles herself well, she may be a candidate for a future leadership role on your team.

Many additional tips and tricks exist, and those listed above may not always be the best alternatives depending on your situation. However, consciously developing a management system that keeps you organized and efficient will help you both manage your employees and also leave you time to complete your own projects.
