10 signs that show you can be a people manager
1. You are starting to delegate
To some people, the idea of delegating work may seem like laziness or a sign of being unable to cope with work levels. In fact, successful delegation is a very important skill to have in a workplace because it enables smooth workflow. It is not an easy option – working late to finish a project or meet a deadline is actually simpler than explaining the work to someone else and ensuring that they are familiar and confident enough to complete it. Careful, planned delegation not only enables you to get on with other tasks that are in need of your attention, it also fosters a trusting relationship between you and your colleagues and empowers others.
2. You set a good example for the rest of the team
3. You find yourself coaching and training others in your team, and enjoy doing so
On the other hand, if you find yourself feeling a real sense of accomplishment when a colleague grasps a new concept or makes real progress on a piece of work because of your input, then management is a natural step for you.
