There are several challenges that I face in my role as a manager. One of these is shortage of staff. In my department there are only 2 employees whom I have to allocate the many duties involved with that department. The main challenge in this case is to prioritize assignments with this limited staff. To get the urgent job done I have to assign the task to the most qualified employee in that task. Other challenges include different personalities, keeping employee engaged and delegating assignments. Interview a Manager.
