Are you consultative, democratic, chaotic or persuasive? Are you a control freak or do you prefer not to micromanage? To get to know your own management style, write down how your ideal manager would behave and then reflect on which of these traits you feel you have. It may become clear that your style is different from your ideal! Another tactic is to talk to your staff about how they feel about your management style. Gathering their feedback can provide you with helpful ways to improve.
