Have you ever wondered what type of manager you are or how those around you rate your engagement skills?
In his latest podcast Steven Weeks, policy manager at NHS Employers discovers what type of manager he is by answering a series of questions in a research based tool created by Dilys Robinson, principal research fellow from the Institute for Employment Studies. Her research work was conducted both inside and outside of the NHS.
Dilys compiled the questions in the tool to help people managers understand more about the type of manager they are through a series of questions heavily based towards behaviours. It also helps managers to think about themselves, their management practices and how they can improve and strengthen their people manager skills.
The NHS has a significant number of people managers who have to combine the responsibility of managing people with their clinical / medical commitments, using this tool can help those managers discover more about their skills and how they can further develop as a people manager.
