Our MANAGEMENT MAGICIANS™ series is dedicated to those exceptional few who step forward to serve as guides, sages and responsible parties for others in pursuit of the greater good for society and their organization! These are managers who redefine their job titles to ensure their own personal contentment as they motivate, monitor and mentor their team members each day. The “magic” that a talented manager is able to create changes their lives, the lives of their team members and ripples throughout the larger society. We salute their sacrifices and share their techniques and “secrets” to achieving sustained positive experiences for themselves, clients, customers, peers, team members, and the public at large! 

In this episode our topic is, “How to Successfully Manage People that You Do Not (Really) Like!”

Some people we love, some we like, some we tolerate and some we do everything in our power to never be around! That is life for all of us. In our professional lives, we understand that we are going to have interactions with clients, customers, vendors, contractors, supervisors, executives and team members that we don’t love (some of them we don’t even really like). Even for a self-employed professional and a corporate officer there will be individuals that we do not want to spend time outside of work hanging out with.

(Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

How do we integrate our love of management with the (very rare) challenge of having a team member that we do not personally like?

Consistency. Confidentiality. Compliance.

We will use these tools to ensure that our team member never even suspects that we don’t personally like them!
