what if i failed to do as asked,will i look like an idiot .there will be scores of How,Why,When and what in your minds. your mind will be running faster than a bullet train.the only thing is that you must know when and how to stop that train at the platform on time and then start again. that is when i realised that i need to interact more with my teammates,get to know more than just filling the shelf. i learned that very quickly as soon i was put in the front door to handle the situation. the more i started working with closely with my workmates, the better knowledge i got of their behaviour towards work,their strengths and weakness. the best thing happend was that even though i was their manager, i was also their workmates.they responded well with me and it was more fun to work.the responsibility on my shoulder as a manager was getting lighter and lighter.in few months i was doing my job on auto pilot mode.knowing the depth of your team was like going for a fishing with a gps in your boat.

the worse thing you can do to yourself is getting caught by your team or juniors that you have little knowledge about what you are talking about.
This will open the pandora box for you and every time you make a decision,they will put you in a spot. on the other side,if you are well versed in your field and can show your team the your knowledge and expertise to get the desired results. you gain two thing over them. the first thing is respect,as they now know that you know your business very well and the second this is command over them as they will never question you or bother to challenge your decision as they are well aware of your capabilities.
During my career i came across many managers with many skills,shapes and sizes. i also benefited to experience the same scenario from different leaders of the business. it was so amazing to see ,how the different managers got...
