Welcome to Management Patterns. This blog is all about the types of behaviours that make for good managers and leaders, and those that make for bad managers. I am not a management scientist or professional student of management. However, I have led a variety of teams in a number of organisations and, of course, have at the same time been led and managed. The patterns I describe here are based on my own observations and reflections, and are representative of my own experiences in particular teams, at particular companies, in a particular industry. The experience of others may vary, and I'd be very interested to engage with readers on their own observations of management patterns.
In the meantime: I hope you get something useful out of this blog, and don't be afraid to comment! I'll try to keep to a reasonably regular schedule, publishing at least once a week.
