35 Impactful Questions Managers Should Ask Themselves Regularly
For managers’ leading teams, putting out fires, and keeping track of timelines. Some days you'll be stretched to your limits and some days you'll motivate your team to work better. But this article from First Round Review covers what questions should managers be asking themselves during critical moments of reflection. These include teams, performances, cross-functional communication, and personal well-being.
The article takes 35 managers who are working in great companies and focuses on their habit of reflection. Some great answers here and I hope you can resonate with some of them.
Your story should be exactly that, your story. We are all different, we have different triggers, habits, and ideas that work for us but it doesn’t mean it will work for others. Make sure what you read will be right for your personality. Just because your friends wake up at 5 am & head out to the gym, doesn’t mean it is applicable to you. Know your system, and tweak it but don’t make radical changes based on others’ advice.
