Be communicative. Any type of relationship is always way better and easier when both parties communicate. Be open to suggestions. Sometimes, some people have bigger imagination than yours. Don’t be rude. Mistakes do happen. Communicate what the problem is. Have a priority list. Don’t just throw tasks to your team all at the same time and expect them to know which one is the priority and which one should be least prioritized. Value other people’s time. Recognize the fact that nothing takes a second. Don’t micromanage. And no, you can’t be hanging around our shoulders. Be clear with what you want. Apologise when needed. Be kind.
To all our clients, thank you for being all of these and more.
