Management Tips from Kermit the Frog

America’s hardest-working frog has a few things to say about good management practices. From emotional intelligence to team building, project management, contract management, and risk and change management, Kermit has a lot of experience in managing a diverse team.

Kermit has always been the leader of The Muppets. He’s a brave risk-taker who inspires the people around him to do their best… Seriously – what business wouldn’t want a level-headed frog like Kermit running the show? (SimplyHired, June 2015)

Management Tips from Kermit the Frog

Are you a new manager? A little green on leadership skills? (sorry – we couldn’t resist the pun!) Check out our Management Practices Certificate program, with 9 courses that will teach you the essential skills of being a manager.

An overlooked skill, Emotional Intelligence, is essential to anyone in a leadership role.

“Always stay calm. Never let your team see you get red in the face. —Of course, that’s much easier when you happen to be green.” (Kermit the Frog)

Additional management tips from Kermit:

  • “Support your team!”
  • “Make a schedule each day and stick to it.”
  • “Read over your contracts carefully!”
  • “Be prepared for [anything].”

Of course, management skills can be put to good use even if you are not managing a team, a project, or a hilarious troupe of Muppets. We all have natural leadership skills, and NOVA Workforce Development is offering a new class this fall, called Leading Where You Are (Manassas Innovation Park, November 7, 2015).

Wondering how some leaders are able to inspire employees to go the extra mile? If you have a staff that is diverse and multi-talented, you need to understand social intelligence and how it affects interactions with co-workers, customers, and business associates. Leadership Using the Social Intelligence Model will be held on November 14 in Woodbridge.

Of course, we have many courses that will help you strengthen your management skills. Check out our new MyWorkforce online course listing and registration portal for a listing of Leadership and Management courses being offered at our NOVA campus locations this Fall!
