What Makes A Good Manager?

With everything that happened recently, I wonder, what makes a good manager? Really. What makes a good manager?

Is it not enough for the manager to be nice?

Is it not enough for the manager to be on his feet all the time?

Is it not enough for the manager to be empathy towards his subordinates?

Is it not enough for the manager to really, give his best in everything he does?

Is it not enough for the manager to be working almost 16 hours a day?

Is it not enough for the manager to skip all his days off that he deserves all this while?

Is it not enough for the manager to be respected by his subordinates?

Is it not enough? Is it not enough? Is it not enough?

I was so devastated when I know that James is no longer our manager. It was so sudden. Everyone was so shocked. I was utterly shocked too because I read the announcement through my email. I knew the news BY EMAIL, guys! BY EMAIL! I heard that few people who were working in PM shift cried when they were informed. (Most of them have been working with James since his first day!).

The mood in my department has been down for the past few days. Everyone is still not happy with the news. The news totally affected our teamwork which is not good. Especially right now as we are becoming busier and busier.

Hopefully everything will be better soon. And, hopefully we will get a better explanation. Hopefully!

    1. I was not informed with the reason when I wrote this post. That's why I was super upset when I read the email.

      Well, hopefully we will get a new manager soon.

  2. Jangan risau, things will get better.
    Cuba sebarkan positiviti di kalangan kawan2 yg down tu.
    Maybe ada reason kuat kenapa Jason bukan lagi manager Farah :)

      How can I spread positive vibes when I'm down too? T____T

      It's not Jason. It's James. Jason is still working here.

  4. eh..tetibe!biasalah kan, life's full of surprises.kat Malaysia ni TPM pun boleh tetibe kena pecat.Harap Farah dapat manager sebaik James, or maybe even better.

    I think a good manager is the one who walk the walk, not just talk the talk

    1. Memang tetiba sangat. I know life's full of surprises but it's so hard to hadam this news especially right now as we are so busy.

      I'm hoping the same thing too, kak Sal. May the new manager (if I ever get one) is as good as James or even better than him.

      Thanks for sharing the quality that you are looking for in a good manager.

    2. Setuju ngan Sal. Tak kisahlah manager ke sesiapa pun lah yg ada position & ada orang di bawahnya,..

    3. Walk the talk memang sangat penting.

    5. Betul tu, kak Sal. Cakap je lebih selalunya.

    1. Itulah. Sedih sangat. Walaupun dah dekat seminggu lebih, perasaan sedih tu tetap masih ada.

      Dahlah sedih pasal James ni. Lepas tu, bila baca pasal apa yang terjadi dekat Malaysia tu, lagilah sedih. Makin teruk mood saya dekat sini.
