Masterful Management! Here's What It Takes

Masterful Management! Here's What It Takes

Vartika Kashyap 10/12/2019 4

When I describe management as masterful, I am simply referring to a bold and successful management approach during which managers, aka masterful managers, behave in a way that shows that they are in ultimate control of a whole situation and are capable of coaching or telling teams what to do. 

In ProofHub’s culture, we keep personal development and learning above all. Sounds a bit uncommon? I agree. But here’s why it should be common—it’s nice to hire and have people who will be good at the given job, but there something better—Making people better at their jobs. 

Managers and leaders with great reputations, such as Alan Mulally, Warren Buffett, Bill Clinton, Jeff Bozos, etc, have a few things in common. First, they always held faith in others, especially those who worked with them closely. Next, they have the habits that made them masterful managers and the greatest leaders of all times. 

Want to know more about those habits? Well, here you go!

1. Intuitive

Intuitiveness is the first sign of a masterful manager. As a masterful manager, you should be able to process things rationally while also following your gut feeling when risk is necessary. Plus, you should be great at predicting or intuiting patterns of market trends and using them to everyone’s advantage. 

2. Collaborative

Masterful managers are collaborative, not commanding. They prefer to collaborate rather than command and creating team cohesion. They never run after short-term successes, instead, they focus more on effective collaboration, positive morale, high turnover, and long-term success.

3. Sensing

Masterful managers are like player-manager—” a person who plays for a team and also manages the team”. Rather than trying to achieve what is unachievable, they are in with the team to achieve what is possible and in everyone’s best interest. They’re supportive of their team and are constantly encouraging people to work on their skills.   

4. Relationship Oriented

Workplace relationships are more important than ever. Masterful managers understand that. That’s why they manage people like people, not numbers or headcounts in the office. They show emotional intelligence and are primarily motivated by and concerned with his/her interactions with people. 

5. Appreciative

Masterful managers believe in giving credit wherever and whenever its due. They do not take credit for the success of their team. They always prefer that team members receive credit for the results they’ve achieved. 


Great leaders and masterful managers always show a high degree of sensitivity to team members. Their management style is all about showing a high degree of respect and sensitivity towards others. They nurture a collaborative work environment where everyone feels important, satisfied, happy, motivated and successful. In simple words, they lead others in a way that guarantees personal and professional success and esteem.
