Performance Review Phrases for Managerial Skills

Obviously Managerial skills are important in roles where the employee is managing a team.  But there are also some roles where management skills are also necessary even if you don’t manage a team.  Some examples of managerial skills might be leadership,  decision making abilities, multitasking.  If the employee has a team they manage they need to have the ability to motivate employees. Everybody has worked for someone that doesn’t motivate or inspire you to do more and be more.  If you are managing people who are managing others,  the first step to teaching them managerial skills, is to lead by example.  If you are a great manager, it is likely some of that will rub off.
