    Succession Problems (Who Wants to Be a Manager?) 6 | 14

    We’ve talked about knowing whether or not being a manager is right for you and manager burnout, but what if no one wants to be a manager at all? Kim, Jason, and Amy discuss the challenges and motivations for becoming a manager. They explore the survey results that show a lack of interest in people management, the reasons behind it, the role of middle managers, and the emotional labor involved in being a manager.

    Radical Candor Podcast Checklist
    Define the role. Teach people what the job of management is and provide the training and resources to help them succeed.Create a buddy or mentorship program so people interested in people management can experience some of the positive aspects of building relationships, guiding teams to achieve results and helping people take steps in the direction of their dreams. If you want to explore the manager dilemma further, listen to S5, Ep.25: Should I be a manager? And S6. Ep.2: Managers are Burned Out, Too.

Clear tips towards your best manger self

Before I get to work, I listen to Kim, Amy, and Jason to decide what I’ll intentionally work on today/this week with my team. The discussion during the podcast really helps reframe and understand the approach. The tips at the end are just a perfect bit size summary for all that we heard. And I truly appreciate the web posts with all the additional material for when a subject is particularly interesting!
