HROB Self-Reflection Individual Essay
A manager is an individual who usually oversees a firm or companies actions on a daily basis. A manager has to have qualities of a leader to be selected for this position because in general the manager’s job has a huge weight on the company he is managing and can be a main cause for their major downfall or great success. There have been many influential and important leaders throughout history that have made the world a better place to live in, such as, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, and Steve Jobs, these men have mad the world a better place by taking a stand and having very strong leadership skills. It does not matter what your managing or what kind of manager you are it is crucial to have good leadership skills because alone you are weaker than you would be with a group of employees or people that believe in what you are doing and have been convinced that you are doing a good of it and that is why being a leader is crucial to being a manager. If I were a manager I would make sure that I would have all the tools and skills necessary to become a strong leader and manager. Some crucial skills that are needed in managers are to be inspired in your job so that you are self-motivated to work hard and also to make you aspire to do your best at the job you’re doing, you also need to be confident, learn from mistakes, and realize that just because you are the manager does not mean that you cannot learn from your employees that your leading.

The reason that there will always be something more attractive to a human being (living in a first world country) is simply for the reason that a regular person can ever be truly happy with one thing when there is something better sitting right in front of them. Now keeping that in mind I would hope to attract employees to my company by being a good genuine manager to them in terms of treating everyone fairly, being a trustworthy manager, I would be committed to the company, and I would also be a helpful and reliable leader too my employees.
