Here is a guide to approaching different types of managers

This story was first published by Digiday sibling WorkLife

Being a manager is a lot of work. 

There isn’t always the best training from top executives for new managers on how to approach the role and make sure their team feels comfortable. On the flip side, senior managers might be stuck in their ways, regardless of whether they are actually working or not. Ultimately, a smooth-functioning organization would have frequent management training sessions and check-ins, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. 

That’s why we created this guide to help employees navigate how to work with different types of leaders. It’s a realistic approach for people who want their work lives to run a little smoother and to see success, even if you have opposite ways of working together.

It’s not so black and white either. The 10 different types of managers below is a short list of categorizations. Often managers bounce between them, depending on other factors like the person they’re working with, their personal lives, and so on.

“I wouldn’t label any of these as bad,” said Paru Radia, a business consultant and coach. “We’re all also people and have different traits at different points and all want to show up better.”
