10 Behaviours That Make Up a Great Manager

"People leave managers, not companies."

Have you heard this saying before? 

I'm sure you have. I've spent a lot of time learning about leadership and as part of that, it's differences to management

You can be a great leader and you don't have to be a manager who has direct reports. 

But management is an extremely important function in any company. 

My greatest manager so far was Amanda Whyte who taught me a lot. The thing I appreciate the most was her candid constructive feedback that every quarter gave me something to work on. I'm driven by learning so for me it was extremely important to know the areas that I needed to improve. 

I consider myself lucky to have had such a manager. 

But what about the people who are not as lucky? What makes a bad manager and what makes a great manager? 

Google set out to discover that through a 10-year long research they call Project Oxygen

I summarised their findings in the below infographic which highlights the 10 things that make up a great manager.
