The fact that you’re participating right now is a great sign! Just because you’re leading a team and encouraging them to grow doesn’t mean it’s time for you to stop.

Always find ways to improve when interacting with your team. During your 1:1s, start asking what you can do to improve as a manager, rather than just considering what the employee can change. Hold yourself accountable for these actions. During the next 1:1, explain the steps you took to improve based on that feedback.
