Top Reviews from Mastering Management Essentials

I am now more focused on the development plan of my reports. I am trying to align their personal goals with the company objectives.

I learned I need to take a step back and lead and be more strategic. Not get in the weeds and grow our business through my team. Defining everyone’s role and responsibility and delegating more to let them own our success.
