Managers like these work hard at displaying consistent behavior. They follow through on promises, commitments, and decisions. With these types of managers, we can always feel confident that we know where we stand, they aren’t likely to display erratic behavior, and they give credit where credit is due (and criticism, when necessary and beneficial). With these individuals – as long as we are staying on track – then we can rely on them and know that they will be there to back us up. I hope you’ve had at least a couple of managers like this along the way….I know I have and they have helped mold me into the confident and productive Project Manager and consultant that I am today.
