New managers, as well as experienced ones, often get stuck on the hamster wheel of wanting to deliver exceptional service and products every time. This is an admirable trait, albeit one that is usually impossible to maintain. It is exhausting and often a great waste of your resources.
The step up mindset requires a change in attitude and behaviour. Focus must be on driving not just your own success, also that of your team’s, your clients, and therefore your company’s. Understanding your teams and your company’s goals will stand you in good stead. Taking time out to understand the part that you play within these goals is crucial.
