What Can a Guy Do?


Tips for male managers from the female playbook

CONTROLLING BOSSES ARE BAD BOSSES
So are micro-managers. Give your people the power to do their jobs.

FLEXIBILITY, NOT RIGIDITY
Learn to allow your employees to sculpt their jobs. Don't finger-wag. Be open to others' opinions and build consensus.

ADMIT YOU DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING
You can't solve all of your problems, but your staff probably can. Avoid hogging air time--learn to listen.
