so I've been promoted to a manager position at work and obviously part of that is making sure everyone else is doing what they're supposed to and generally see to it that people aren't slacking off

problem is I'm a measly coward who hates conflict and can't muster up the balls to call anybody out on shit and I can just barely handle even correcting those who do things the wrong way.

It's only a matter of time before my boss realizes that I'm not doing my job properly, so how can I get better at this? I really can't afford to lose this job

Knowing confidently that when your staff fucks up they're fucking everyone over. After that it's just balls and brains. You know how people talk about "management styles". It's a lot of shit because everyone is different. At the end of the day half of the shit that is going to you can be delegated.

OP I also have trouble with confrontation for the reason that I can't stand having people dislike me, but here's some tips that I think might help.

Observe people who fuck up, does it look like they don't care or was it an honest mistake?

If its the latter, talk to them. Be firm and ask them about what happened. Don't be a pushover and make excuses for them, but allow them to make up for it. Play it from the angle that you're doing them a favour by not going off on them.

If they're "fucking the dog", then think about it like they've disrespected you. Like its a blatant fuck you to yourself. Its easier to get angry at someone if you think that they are screwing you over. But yeah, get yourself angry about the fact they don't care because that reflects on you.

Also don't get too close to your workers, you don't want them leveraging personal stuff over you. Keep it professional and at arms length.

Do it in private. Don't yell at someone in front of others. Take him aside.

Use the "One little thing" approach - "I've been watching you and you are generally doing good work. But there's one little thing I'd like you to be careful about . . . . "
