How do you shift your mindset from an individual contributor to a manager mindset? How do you split yourself into all the needed buckets for everyone to move the needle forward? As a manager, it’s important to understand what’s valuable to your team members and what you can do differently to help them to perform at their best.  

In this episode of The Agency Blueprint, I’m joined by Allyns Melendez, a CEO & Founder at HR Transformed, COO at a National Public Relations Firm, and a part-time Professor of Continuing Education for Temple University. She has 25+ years of human capital and business management experience and a passion for human capital and business strategy. She helps businesses understand the necessary tactics that will help develop, train, educate, and motivate their employees.  

Listen in to learn how to shift how you manage by starting with directing, then coaching to supporting, and eventually delegating.
