Managing the Game: Going to bat for your team

yin-yangI believe the most important role of a manager is the ability to go to bat for your team. Your team should know you support them even when they aren’t around to see it. Even when you don’t 100% agree you should be able to put the team first and defend them. You shouldn’t be blind to their faults but their failings are just as much your responsibility as theirs. If someone is part of your team and you are keeping them there then you are vouching for them. Own it. Share the glory and own the defeats. Grow together and always go to bat for your team.
