Lisa at Management Craft has written a post on basic expectations for managers. I want to highlight couple of them here:
Managers should build and maintain positive partnerships with peers, team members, managers and customers.
Many frontline managers thought it is only needed to deal with your subordinates, or peers that directly work with you. Managers should also reach out for probing requirements from customers and maintaining positive relationship with other teams and their members.
Good managers are responsive to other’s ideas and concerns.
Ideas cannot be ignored even thought you think it is a bad one. Your subordinates must be heard. Without doing so you are going to limit the creativity around your team.
