Good managers kinda hard to find

CareerBuilder says management is still not taught the way it should be. Most management skills are learned on the job anyhow.

Good managers usually learn by having bad managers themselves. They see what to avoid.

First, don't be overly controlling. Micromanaging, creating impossible rules--these are bad.

Admit mistakes you make them. Hanging tough makes you look lame.

Don't send mixed signals. Set a positive tone.

Don't punish the good and reward the bad. Sometimes managers are intimidated by talented employees and give them a hard time. Don't.

What do you think? Do your hires look forward to coming to work?
