Why do some people get to be managers/supervisors and others not?
- 6 months agoFavourite answer
Being a manager is a job that requires additional skills such as time management, leadership, ability to adapt to change, conflict resolution etc. Not everyone can be a manager and not everyone wants to be a manager because of the added responsibility.
There are often cases where employees are incorrectly promoted and are made managers when they lack the skills and personality to undertake the role - I would say it is not an easy job and that not everyone who is a manager is rightfully a manager.

Being a good manager or supervisor requires good "people skills." Some have it; some do not.

The person who generally gets to be a manager does the following:
--They do their job well
--They are a steady performer, showing up on time, working the hours scheduled, and following the rules
--They are respectful to their co-workers and to the bosses, and to the customers
--They volunteer to do more than they have to
--They show enthusiasm for their work
--They don't cause trouble at the workplace
--They smile a bit and rarely complain.
--A bonus is if they have extra training or education beyond what their peers have, showing they want to get ahead. This could be technical training, or a few courses at a local community college. When there's a new job skill being taught at the workplace, they are one of the first people to schedule time for it.
--They stay out of petty arguments, refusing to take sides
--They occasionally have a good idea for how to improve the workplace or the work processes, which they politely offer to the boss for his/her consideration.
Do most of the above and you too will be considered to be a manager.

It all depends on qualifications, experience and education.

Some people are organized, timely, personable, and responsible. these people know the organization, know how to 'read the room' and know their product/service line.
And some people do not give a whack and are only in it to earn a few bucks for their next bar crawl.
Organized, responsible people become managers, then supervisors and then administrators.
....people who earn a few bucks for bar crawls still get paid health insurance and enough money to eat and pay their rent.

Managers & supervisors were usually TOP workers first. They proved themselves and earned a promotion.

Some people have "leadership qualities"
Which could mean anything.
