Becoming a manager is tough. Not only do you have your own goals, projects and deadlines to worry about, but now you have to worry about other people’s too. It's a daunting prospect. And if you're reading this, chances are you're new to management and looking for some tips to set you on the right track. If that's the case, congrats - you've come to the right place!
Throughout this guide, we'll cover the basic management skills you'll need to be successful. If it seems like a lot to juggle, don't sweat it. Some of these skills you might already have and just need fine tuning in. For the ones you think could use some work, even a few small weekly changes will make a big impact on your team's engagement.

Fortunately, there’s an easy solution (and one that will impress your boss): keep a pulse on your team’s motivation levels. An easy way to do this is by using a tool like TINYpulse. TINYpulse gives you the ability to collect live feedback and insights from your employees, and create reports to share with your team.

Eleven years later and 125 employees strong, DevFacto obviously did something right.
Here at TINYpulse, we use Slack every day, but that doesn’t really describe the depths of our attachment to it. We use it every hour. (Slack is one of the first things I personally check when I get in to the office and when I leave, especially because some of my coworkers are 15 hours ahead of me.)
No element of a performance review is as intimidating for employees as the dreaded self-evaluation section. A self-evaluation can change the trajectory of your career; hopefully for the better, but frequently for the worse -- especially as a manager begins to question your ability to self-assess.
