Savvy Confessions: What Makes a Good Manager?

This anonymous poster in our Savvy Confessions group wants to know how to become a good manager. Chime in with your thoughts below.

I just received a promotion into a management role at my company, I am thrilled to have received it but I am a little nervous about being a manager. I know my superior thinks I will be great for the job but are there any managers our there that have tips? Or managers that you have loved and why? I really want to be excited and, of course, want to be very successful at my new position.

Share your own career- and finance-related questions anonymously in the Savvy Confessions group for a chance to be featured on SavvySugar and advised by fellow Savvy readers.

I think just staying logical and making the decision that's best for the business. Don't rise to any bait or let any attitudes bully you into accepting less than quality work. Congrats on your new gig!

I think that if you were chosen to be a manager you probably don't have anything to worry about! I've found though that in past managers I've loved they have always given me a healthy dose of constructive criticism! I think it's really important!
