Yes, you read that right. Wandering around can make you a better manager. In today's fast-paced, corporate environment, it can be difficult to peel ourselves away from the daily grind of emails, problems, and reports that keep us chained to our desks and out of sight. We can become so bogged down with the responsibilities that come with being a manager, that it’s easy to forget our biggest responsibility: Managing.
Managing doesn’t just stop at enforcing company policies and procedures or driving production. Managing is spending time with your employees. It’s embedding yourself with your teams, asking questions, and ultimately driving change through their feedback. No manager knows everything. They can’t.
