New Managers Should Develop a Leadership Philosophy

The problems you face as a manager are different from the ones you’ve faced before. Whether you’re juggling conflicting demands, delivering difficult messages, or addressing performance problems, you can set yourself up for success by having a clear management philosophy. “Servant leadership” is one great example. To start thinking like a servant, stop thinking your employees work for you. They don’t — they work for the company, and your job is to facilitate that relationship. So rather than focusing on your personal glory, focus on how you can serve your team, to help them succeed. When you’re assigning work to someone, think of it as matching that person’s interests with a business goal. When you’re giving feedback, think of it as helping someone understand how they can do the best job possible. Being a servant may not sound very powerful, but it can deliver what you really need: influence and results.

    Hi Bittermelon,Including of checking on poeivrus year audit findings during our audit, is it considered as audit follow up? I think it is practical and the poeivrus year un-rectified issue can be a current issue and this will directly affect the rating of audit reports. One more question is regarding the resolved audit finding. How do you define and comment on resolved audit finding? Is it due to auditor unable to identify the core problem from the issue raised, therefore it is only based on facts that can be rectified on the spot? Any recommendation to improve the audit finding from easily resolved?Thanks.
