Should You Become A Manager?

If you are looking at the year ahead and you want to make changes to your career, you may be looking at paths to promotion. Depending on the role you are in now, and the experience you have, you may be thinking about becoming a manager.

Being a manager is a significant role, and a lot of people take immense pride in holding this position. An obvious benefit of being a manager is a higher wage and other perks, but being a manager isn’t easy. There is a lot of responsibility involved with being a manager, and some people aren’t cut out for the role.

Some people thrive on responsibility while others need to develop these skills

Some people thrive on responsibility. Furthermore, just because you weren’t suited for being a manager in the past doesn’t mean you cannot become a manager now, or in the future. People change and develop. It may be that the roles or people involved with the position are different, which can affect how a manager responds. There is also a lot of training available to help you feel more confident in the role.

It is essential to ask yourself should you become a manager. If you feel confident, becoming a manager is an obvious goal for you to pursue. If you like the idea of becoming a manager, but you are not sure you are ideally suited for the post yet, that is okay. If you analyse yourself and discover weaknesses, you have a perfect opportunity to work on these flaws.

You can make yourself a more suitable candidate

Management training is the ideal way to make yourself a more suitable candidate, and feel more comfortable about the position. If you have worked under good managers before, you will likely be inspired by them. However, you may also be intimidated by them. It is easy to think good managers are born, not made, and it is a person’s nature and personality that shapes them into being good managers.

People develop skills in their way

This isn’t always the case. Many people build their skills, awareness, connectivity, and every aspect of their approach to business. Even good managers are keen to learn and develop because there is always an opportunity to know more and become better informed. If good and great managers are happy to undertake training and development, it makes sense for people with no management experience to take this process seriously.
