The job requires new knowledge, new skills, and new behaviors, and managers need go after learning opportunities whenever and wherever they can find them.

Here are three ways to grow into a really great manager:

  • Seed – get feedback from all levels to gain insight into your performance
  • Feed – get smarter: Go after your own learning and development
  • Weed – get rid of unwanted behaviors
