Recent data from the Pew Research Center points to yet another bonus for managerial and leadership positions in the workplace. Employees new to these leadership roles have survived promotions and hiring processes, but still have a lot to accomplish when it comes to the actual job description.

If you were recently promoted to a management position, you may be in agreement with those surveyed by the Pew Research Center. According to the study, 69 percent of bosses claimed satisfaction in their job, as opposed to 48 percent of regular workers. In addition, only 28 percent of workers are satisfied with their paychecks, compared to four out of 10 satisfied managers. 

Consider implementing the following three tips for for starting out on the right foot and making a lasting impact through efficient and productive leadership.

Communication is key - It may take time to get used to the position. Ensure a smooth transition by keeping new strategies and plans transparent so employees are aware of upcoming changes. Keeping open correspondence with employees will strengthen your future relationships, as well as instill a sense of understanding in their own office function as well. 

Set long-term goals – As a leader, the future of your department or company should always be in your line of vision. Set realistic goals each month and make sure steps are taken to reach achievement. 

Understand not only how your business runs, but how it can run even better – According to the Wall Street Journal, it is the responsibility of a manager to ensure that a business is producing results in a timely and efficient manner. Once you get in the groove of day to day work, it can be hard to see that some areas need change or are lacking particular skills. Be able to stick to what has worked best for past leaders, but don't be afraid to cultivate new and innovative practices to get the job done. It is your role, as a leader, to see and implement these changes.
