Recent First-Time Manager

Recent First-Time Manager - student project

I'm in the midst of my first management opportunity and really want to get it right. Before speaking to my direct report for the first time this morning, I sat down and wrote out our conversation and upcoming project using your ROADMAP tool. That and the pointers on encouragement vs teaching made for a very smooth discussion. Honestly not sure how the conversation might have gone (stilted probably) without these invaluable tools. THANK YOU!
