Summary
  • Technical managers are not trained to manage people and have little understanding of the emotional concerns of others. Many technology-oriented people are promoted into managerial positions and come without people skills. Steps to improve those skills involve demonstrating the need for change and then steering the individuals to where they can learn. This is best accomplished by the non-threatening application of personality tests to help them understand what their psychological make-up is. Courses offered over an extended period of time are an effective way to teach the skills needed to manage effectively.
