We've all had nightmare managers in our careers and everyone has their own horror story. This week the Devil Wears Prada is being released in theatres. The movie is based on a novel written about the Sr. Editor of a fashion magazine in New York and is hilarious. It reminds me of my first few jobs and the crazy women I learned from.
Fortunately, I am happy with my current managers. What has made them better managers? How can I make sure that I don't end up like the devil?
I am starting to delegate work and am learning how to manage people myself. Do I have any training at all? NO. The only way that I know to manage people is to try to do the opposite of everything I learned from my first managers. Why is there no formal training in management amongst PR practitioners and is this the same in all service industries?
Hopefully by the time I can afford Marc Jacobs, I will have learned something about management off the job and I won't have junior PR people complaining about me.
