Good to know: Practical experience in the early years is essential for setting leaders, but does the job require additional skills?
“Yes, absolutely,” Tracey says. “You need to be patient, approachable and persistent but you’ll also need to be good at multi-tasking and learn to always have a back-up plan!” Lots of these skills will be best learned on the job as new leaders build confidence in their leadership.
But while managers will need to make decisions and lead their team, they also need to be ready when staff need support.
“It’s not a desk job,” Tracey says. “You’ve always got to be prepared to be hands-on and work with your team. A good manager leads from the ground up.”
