If You Are a Manager, When is Your Job Done?

If you are a manager, you know your job is done when all of the people who directly report to you are impeccable self-managers and are all over-qualified to do their jobs.

This means you will have essentially worked yourself out of a job because the people now manage themselves effectively and can all do their jobs impeccably without you.

Here’s the good news

As soon as you have demonstrated you can do this, you immediately become exponentially more valuable to the company that employs you.

This directly supports our definition of management, which is ” the ability to grow good people who can grow good people”.
