Effective management is key to making any business work. If those in charge of leading the way for employees are ineffective, the company suffers, no matter how great the team may be.  As a content manager who started my career as a freelance writer, I have experienced my fair share of managers who were not the best at their job. Whether it be organizational skills, interpersonal communication ability, or overall leadership capability, I have come to understand what qualities make a truly great team leader. These 25 skills are the ones I have found to be most ideal when properly managing any team. Such principles helped me grow professionally prior to stepping into a managerial role. I have found these practices to be tried and true throughout my journey as a writer and as a managing editor here at Wealth of Geeks. Foster Open Communication Channels Image Credit: Shutterstock. Encourage an atmosphere where team members feel comfortable expressing their thoughts and concerns. A manager who listens actively and openly creates trust, leading to smoother collaboration and problem-solving. One issue I always faced as a freelance writer was not receiving enough direction from management. I would often turn in work only to see it had been heavily edited once published.  If I had received constructive criticism and feedback for my writing, it would have helped me excel as an employee and made much less work for those in managing and editorial positions. For this reason, I always try to explain to the writers I manage here at Wealth of Geeks how their work could improve. Lead by Example Image Credit: Shutterstock. Your actions speak louder than words. Demonstrating the values and work ethic you expect from your team sets a powerful precedent. Whether arriving early, meeting deadlines consistently, or displaying a positive attitude, your behavior influences your team’s performance. In my experience, a positive attitude goes a long way. If people you manage are afraid to come to you because you may be in a bad mood or seem too busy, they likely are not going to get the guidance they truly need. Provide Clear Expectations Image Credit: Shutterstock. Ambiguity breeds confusion and frustration. Clearly communicate objectives, deadlines, and performance metrics to ensure everyone understands their roles and responsibilities. Clarity empowers your team to focus their efforts effectively. I always try to ensure my team understands any assignments I throw their way. I also use an “open-door policy,” aiming to make anyone with questions or concerns comfortable approaching me with such. Cultivate a Growth Mindset Image Credit: Pressmaster/Shutterstock. Embrace challenges and encourage your team to view setbacks as opportunities for learning and improvement. A growth mindset fosters resilience, innovation, and continuous development, driving long-term success for both individuals and the organization as a whole. Delegate Wisely Image Credit: Shutterstock. Trust your team members with meaningful tasks and empower them to make decisions within their areas of expertise. Effective delegation lightens your workload and promotes skill development and ownership among your team

Essential Podcast Episodes We’ve started 2024 out with a string of essential ChooseFI podcast episodes that I’m immensely proud of. If you haven’t caught up recently, it would be hard to beat Episodes 470 through 476 for impactful listening. Sean Mullaney blew me away on Ep 475 with completely new information I’d never heard before on how to access your money before 59.5. This knowledge will help the entire FI Community and it should be spread far and wide. Yesterday in Ep 476, Amy shared her incredibly personal story where the title says it all: “Love, Loss, and Money: The Shocking Financial Aftermath of a FI Spouse’s Death.” Everyone can benefit from that episode as it highlights how a few simple steps can prevent a significant amount of additional pain in the event of the death of a loved one. There isn’t enough space to go through all these episodes, but “The Cure for the Boring Middle” in Ep 472 is the best way I’ve found to prepare yourself for what FI will look like, and don’t forget that if you have Social Security questions from Ep 474, we’re going to do a part 2, so please hit reply and send them in! How to Save Money on Streaming (Part 2) Two weeks ago in the newsletter I included an article about cutting cable and streaming bills and Randy Parker responded to me with an article he wrote on his site that does an amazing job of providing specific info such as: Free Trials Discounts Bundles Promotions Plus, info on retention offers, timing of subscriptions and much more. I think you’ll get a lot out of this particular article, especially if these services are a big line-item in your budget, so I thought it important enough to follow up with this top-tier resource. Quote I’m Reflecting On “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Brooke Thayer on Episode 15 of Jillian Johnsrud’s podcast ‘Retire Often’ resource. What I’m Reading, Watching, Playing Reading: I’m concurrently reading 3 different series and am absolutely flying through them: – ‘Skyward’ series by Brandon Sanderson. I loved his Mistborn books and when Jessica from the Fioneers highly recommended Skyward, I knew it was going to be a winner. I read the first book in about 2 days and thought it was a great intro to a new fantasy world. – ‘The Naturals’ series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I read her four book ‘Inheritance Games’ series last year and found that she wrote an earlier series about a group of teenagers with special perceptive abilities who help the FBI solve crimes. I’m finishing up the 3rd book as we speak. – ‘Alias Emma’ by Ava Glass. I found this as a curated recommendation in my local Barnes & Noble and liked the idea of a fast-paced spy thriller with a female lead. I read the first book in essentially one sitting and have book two waiting to start! Watching: After hearing the
