C31 Developing yourself in a management role

Question 1

To enable me to assess my management style in respect of managing my own self management and managing my team under different circumstances can be a daunting prospect even under normal conditions. The reasoning behind this is that there are a variety of styles each with their own unique characteristics applicable either to a certain person or situation.

For instance, they see me as able to freely share knowledge and experiences with others which were reflected as a high rating yet at the same time areas for improvement would be support, motivation and trying to encourage involvement from others which was reflected as a lower rating. In order for me to be effective as a manager I must have a combination of good interpersonal skills and at the same time be fully aware of the necessity for personal self development.

If I was to assess my management style which I would need to do if I am to manage a team effectively and efficiency, I would need to classify my existing style, analyse it and put a detailed plan into action which would address the perceived weaknesses and encourage the strengths which I will cover later in this assignment.
