For instance, "the participative style is ideal when you have built your service team into a cohesive group and it can work on its own," Evenson says. "But if you are working with new employees, or with reps who aren't performing up to expectations, you might want to take a more controlling approach. And for those top reps who are really self-sufficient, you might take more of a passive role."
The trick is knowing which style makes sense for the situation, and knowing how to move back and forth from one style to the next when the need arises.
Additional information on understanding and improving your management style appears in the December issue of "Customer Service Newsletter."
