Clever Tactics for Brilliant Young Managers

by David Stern

“If you’re good enough, you are old enough’, a team manager once said when giving Michael Owen, a world –class goal –scorer, his first international game at the age of 18. Is the game true in business?

Young executives come back from business school armed with big ideas. But these may or may not win support from colleagues.

So what are the practical steps that young managers need to take in order to be welcomed?

“ The biggest challenge is a basic lack of experience”, says Steve Newhall, a management consultant. “ This will affect how other people see you. You need to build credibility with your key stakeholders on a one-to-one basis in order to show that you are up to the job. You have got to have confidence in your ability to do the job. But remember that the people around you may not share that opinion”.

Young managers also need to recognize their own weaknesses – and then do something about them. “You will need a good mentor straight away”, says Mr. Newhall, “someone who has plenty of experience and who gives you support and plenty of good advice”.

Answer the following questions about the article.

1. Why is it important for young managers to make key people believe in them and trust them?

2. What should young managers do about their weaknesses, according to Mr. Newhall?

Exercise 4.
