Most managers are self-motivated, consistent with their own natural management style. Many managers would benefit from understanding what their own management style is, and from understanding the style is of other managers and or business owners that they work with, as these need to be complimentary rather than competitive to maximise positive outcomes for the business. Being self-motivated is a key culture driver for managers, as managers frequently determine the priorities and resource allocation for the business. However, some managers are so self-motivated (moving at such a fast pace) and are so focused on leading from the front, that they can often find themselves way out in front, with no one behind. They can then find themselves having to do all of the work while getting frustrated that they are the only ones working hard for the business. If you find yourself in this situation, you need to reduce your speed and allocate time and effort to create an environment that motivates other people in your team to do the work/tasks.
