At Lime Light Management, we’ve found that there is a certain mindset that almost always leads to success. It’s a positive attitude that spills over into every aspect of their work. This means they take pride in what they do, are happy to contribute to the team, and believe that problems can be solved with a little creativity.
Once you’re promoted, this same mindset still applies; it’s just a little different. That positivity now needs to lead you to believe in others and enable their success. When you’re leading a team, your positivity needs to infect the entire group. They need to know you believe in their potential and are going to do your best to make sure they find success.
Once you’re promoted, be sure to manage your stress and keep the mindset that got you there in the first place. Managers at Lime Light Management have had to learn to be patient with the processes of new associates and learn that they can’t micromanage everything. Instead, managers focus on staying positive and stepping in to help their team when they can’t figure out the best way forward. These are the most effective ways to empower others.
