What are micro-habits? These are the smallest movements of great managers you don’t think about. These are little daily habits that are left unnoticed, small steps, but when linked together can tackle big, productive goals. In sculpture, magnificent art needs finer chiseling work to shape that intricate design from a rock little by little. In Bitnacs, Inc., an impressive project needs finer design and implementation bit by bit to produce that amazing project output. Ask yourself: What are the small things your manager has done that stood out and supports you across your career?
Encourage good behavior. High impact managers encourage good behavior making themselves role models to their workers. Good behavior shows from simple greetings like “Thank you”, “Good morning!” “Hi! Hello! and many more. They are also visible making themselves available in open communication and consultation among their associates. They are disciplined and honest which are very important traits of a manager. They are also respectful, courteous, and considerate to their workers in which they also want their workers to be one.
Empowers the Team. High impact manager empowers the team and trusts your decisions. They allow you to own your decision even if there is a slight disagreement. The decision entails projects that are too expensive to reverse but when they see a bright opportunity, they allow you to stand firm on your decision.

They never change direction abruptly; they allow you to be the captain of your decision.
Challenges you. High impact managers challenge you so that you can unleash the full potential innate in you. They challenge you in your performance.

Partnership and collaboration build trust within the team and direct to a shared and common purpose.
Celebrate with you. High impact managers celebrate with you with your achievements. Not only are they consistent in their roles but also, they praise you and cheer you on your success and achievements. Even a small gesture of birthday greeting shows that they celebrate with you.
