I agree completely with you on this one. Candor is definitely one ingredient sometimes lacking when a supervisor deals with an employee.  I love the phrase: "I had rather be cursed by a wise man than praised by a fool".    Many times barriers are presented due to management decisions being made.  It's really best for those barriers to be presented up front rather than late in a program.  Constraints always exist, usually in the form of program dollars.  Excellent post Rachael. Great job.

In general these are all traits of every good employee. In regards discipline, I was asked in a job interview how I would handle discipline issues. Following that I went to 6 different managers and asked them the same quesion.  The replies were all over the map, no two were similiar except for those who waltzed around the question which is to say they didn't answer the question.  So one might argue one must know how to deal with discplinary matters, but if there is no commonality between people on the matter, can we really say this is really important ?

According to me for a manager time management and stress management is also very important . Usually people mislead between a manager and a leader but there is a very slight distinction between them . Managers are expected to multi task and for this they should have the ability to manage time and stress .

One of the most important skill of manager is that he he creates an enviornment of candor that is open enviornment people can easily coordinate with the managers and supervisors without having any fears . Because if the enviornment is open then only employees can work confidently and this is one of the important factor of retention as well.

Thanks Racheal for such an informative post , Definitely to be a good manager one should have the mentioned management skills. Communication skills is the most important factor because a good manager should be able to communicate effectively with the employees . According to me Communication is one of the most inportant factor in professional life . According to some surveys the higher a person is in rank the more he or she communicates within the organisation ,

Persuasion

Persuasion ('selling') is another very valuable tool that successful managers regularly use.  Whether we like it or not, we must constantly sell our ideas, proposals, skills etc. to different groups and individuals inside and outside of our organization in order to be effective. Clear communication and working well with others also improves persuasive abilities.

An important management skill missed here is the ability to talk to your employees in plain language without injecting Dilbert style management buzzwords between the beginning of each sentence and the full stop. Being able to write a blog article without all the management-speak is another lost art, it seems.

Constructive Feedbacks

Very nice share Rachael. Though your list is already quite good, i would like to add another skill to it.
No matter how good a manager is, there is always room for improvement. Hence a good manager would always have a way to ensure timely feedback in the firm. Not only would he provide feedback of each person's performance, but also ask them to provide feedback on his own performance as a manager. In this way, the manager not only makes his own skills better, but the skills of his team also improve exponentially.
