How to make sup­port your role as a man­ager weekly re­port

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

In your role as a man­ager, re­gard­less to how many peo­ple or for what size of com­pany or or­ga­ni­za­tion, you al­ready know that your job re­quires you to make use of pro­fes­sional plat­forms that sup­port your role, help you stream­line daily func­tions, and give you the ex­po­sure you need. Hav­ing a pub­lic pro­file on a lead­ing job site in the Mid­dle East and North Africa (MENA), is out of ques­tion. On, there are over 26 mil­lion pro­fes­sion­als con­nect­ing with more than 40,000 em­ploy­ers in one space. The pos­si­bil­i­ties for ca­reer growth and de­vel­op­ment are in­fi­nite. The re­sources are abun­dant and are all at your dis­cre­tion.

But how do you max­i­mize your ben­e­fit from such plat­forms as a man­ager? Re­gard­less to whether you are hir­ing im­me­di­ately or in the long-run, look­ing for a new ca­reer op­por­tu­nity or sim­ply seek­ing growth and en­hance­ment of your ca­reer, there are many ways that you can make im­prove your ca­reer prospects as a man­ager so that you are ready for your next move when it is the right time.

1. En­gage em­ploy­ees and pro­fes­sion­als on Spe­cial­ties

As a man­ager, it is part of your duty to keep the ball rolling; to keep the mo­men­tum and the drive for busi­ness suc­cess at the high­est stan­dards. It hap­pens spo­rad­i­cally that em­ploy­ees feel slug­gish and unin­spired when they sink in with their daily rou­tine and noth­ing seems to change. What you, as a manger, could do is start a chal­leng­ing, in­spir­ing, or fun-re­lated con­ver­sa­tion on Spe­cial­ties. Ask a ques­tion and en­cour­age your team to par­tic­i­pate by an­swer­ing and ask­ing their own ques­tions. For one side of the coin, this will help re­fresh your team and break their repet­i­tive work-mode. On the other side, shar­ing con­tent on pro­fes­sional net­works is an au­to­matic tool for ex­po­sure. Your ques­tions, or an­swers, will put your name among mil­lions of pro­fes­sion­als and might draw some ex­cit­ing ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties to­wards you and your busi­ness.

2. Opt for an on­line com­pany pro­file

With thou­sands of em­ploy­ers and busi­nesses out there pro­mot­ing them­selves and hunt­ing the best ta­lent that ex­ists in the MENA re­gion, man­agers are tasked with step­ping up the brand­ing game. Com­pany pro­files is your ticket for do­ing that. As a manger, opt­ing for a pre­mium com­pany pro­file on will make your job sig­nif­i­cantly more ef­fi­cient. Think of these pro­files as mag­net for pro­fes­sion­als. Job seek­ers and other ca­reer-driven in­di­vid­u­als will take on the re­spon­si­bil­ity of find­ing you, fol­low­ing you, learn­ing all about your news and up­dates, and be­ing on the watch for your lat­est va­can­cies and job of­fer­ings. As your pro­file gains more pop­u­lar­ity on, you will find that this is a rea­son to cel­e­brate your suc­cess­ful de­ci­sions.

3. Of­fer on-the-job learn­ing

This is a fea­ture that we rec­om­mend to be em­braced all the time and by all pro­fes­sion­als. There is no ceil­ing for learn­ing. Even af­ter gain­ing mas­tery and decades of ex­pe­ri­ence, there are al­ways more ar­eas to grow, more skills to ac­quire, more top­ics to ex­plore, and more com­pe­ten­cies to build. The on­line learn­ing por­tal of­fers an ar­ray of the most up-to-date cour­ses, work­shops, and train­ing pro­grams in just about ev­ery field and in­dus­try. As a man­ager, you are ad­vised to mo­ti­vate your em­ploy­ees to push their lim­its and en­roll in new train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that can make them even more pro­duc­tive and suc­cess­ful. This will surely re­flect pos­i­tively on you as a sup­port­ive man­ager who rec­og­nizes the lim­it­less room for im­prove­ment.

4. Share your wis­dom

Your team looks up to you, many of them aspire for a sim­i­lar po­si­tion as yours and are very ea­ger to learn from your ex­per­tise and years of ex­pe­ri­ence. Use your pres­ence on to share with your team, as well as other pro­fes­sion­als who are in­ter­ested in your field, some in­sights and useful ma­te­rial.
