How to Tell If You're a Great Manager
As I read this list of 12 questions, I started answering them for each of the different roles I’ve had. When I worked for great managers and answered the questions, I found I answered yes to almost all of them. The converse is also true.

This list incorporates questions about communication clarity, mission, shared values, respect, community and teamwork.

Do I know what is expected of me at work?
Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right?
At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for doing good work?
Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?
Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
At work, do my opinions seem to count?
Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel my job is important?
Are my co-workers committed to doing high-quality work?
Do I have a best friend at work?
In the last six months, has someone at work talked to me about my progress?
This last year, have I had opportunities at work to learn and grow?
Running through this list as a manager with each report might be a great way to structure a one-on-one, especially those deeper conversations about career progression, employee satisfaction and a person’s place within an organization.

what i learned today
The quest for the perfect _________.

I met a fellow at a party last year who, when I told him what I do for work, shared a great anecdote that I have since carried with me.

His name is Ports, and he told me about a lesson from his 6th grade teacher. A lesson about finding a quest in life. Something that doesn’t involve work, doesn’t involve relations, but is a quest for the perfect form of something you love. Such that when life gets you down, you’ll always have your quest.

The teacher’s, for example? The quest for the perfect french fry. He loved french fries! So he was always on the hunt for the best one.

The quest Ports had decided upon was for the perfect chocolate frappe. (Now you see why he told this story upon our meeting.) This guy knew everything about ice cream and frappes, and said that, indeed, when he’d fallen on difficult times in life, his simple quest had kept him going. New ice cream parlors, new chocolate frappes, new possibilities.

I shared this story while sharing an exceptional sunset on a winter’s evening at Coney Island not too long ago. Shown above, captured on my phone. Because my quest, I decided – independent from work, aside from love, family, friends, and beyond any material matters – simply, my quest is to see the perfect sunset.
