The Five Must Have Qualities of an Effective Manager

Quick–What qualities come to mind when you think of an effective manager? Here is my list of the five must have qualities of an effective manager. I wrote this list (and my book) based on my experiences of  working for some pretty ineffective managers.

1. Strong communicator-Communicate with your employees so they always know where they stand.
2. Be trust-worthy-Demonstrate to your people that you always have their best interest in mind.
3. Be humble-Shine the light on others so they receive the credit they are due.
4. Compassion-Give people the flexibility they need to handle personal issues that arise.
5. Sense of humor-Don’t be so serious. Allow people to have fun at work.

What would you add to this list?
