The Ambidextrous Manager

Acing the Analog and Digital People Management game!


The workplace is not just a collection of business transactions, it is an ecosystem of human relationships.

"There is no relationship in the workplace more powerful than the one between people managers and employees," said SHRM CEO, Johnny C. Taylor, Jr.
Many managers are promoted because they excel as individual contributors. Many are promoted as a reward for their long tenure. Investing in people managers can be a game changer for a startup when they scale up.

An organization needs to leverage people managers to attract, develop and engage the workforce. The culture and organizational values are lived through people who lead the individual contributors. For the organization, people managers define a very large part of the employee experience. People managers become the talent pool from which the future leaders of the business are drawn.

Success in the workplace means prioritizing the management of people, guiding employees’ development and cultivating a strong sense of collective purpose at work. The most successful organizations nurture and maintain a strong culture, while the worst find themselves hindered by toxicity in the workplace.

The organizations’ business models, processes and practices, are shaped by the environment coupled with technological advancements along with the socio-economic-political shifts. The best businesses are successful because they are equally effective while dealing with customers online as they were when they could meet the customers in the office. The people managers have to be as effective in managing the remote teams as well as when physically co-located with them. The two scenarios call for different strategies for leading and managing people effectively. This is a challenge that even experienced people managers face today as they need to figure out how to run the teams when people are working from their home and hometowns. Both groups face a common challenge - how to become an Ambidextrous Manager.
