Therefore, If the manager wants everyone in the team to have a sense of responsibility and dedication to their work, the manager must first show that he/she is a person full of responsibility and dedication. So the manager always wants to work with the best companies like that.

A manager is a person who always does their best when implementing fundamental company goals; He or She feels calm and steady when taking responsibility. Especially, the manager is never afraid of suffering or difficulties in dedicating to the development of the department and company. Above these things, a good manager never forgets to bring benefits to employees.

Working under the management of such a person is a great motivation for the staff to strive to develop themselves to be like their leader, with a sense of responsibility and dedication to the job.

In contrast, leaders who have a habit of blaming employees, seeing employees as a shield for their own mistakes and risk will only make employees feel dissatisfied and uncomfortable in the process of working as well as the disintegration of team spirit.

2.2 Knowing how to listen, understand and share with their staff

Human resources managers do not automatically give themselves the right to command or scold subordinates during working or when mistakes occur. Because this does not make employees obey or work better, but only creates mental pressure for them.

Managers who want to handle problems within their team need to realize that listening, understanding and sharing is very essential.

Listening and absorbing opinions from many people in the working environment to develop working policies and regulations will increase the possibility of internal consensus when the policies and regulations are put into effect.

Understanding as well as sharing difficulties, sorrows and joys with your staff will erase the gap between managers and employees as well as strengthen solidarity and cooperation in the team or the group.
