In my experience, managers who don't micro-manage are also solid leaders so I'd start with making sure you don't do that.

As a software engineering manager, this is a rule I live by.

I would also say that being passionate about mentorship is a huge plus to be an effective manager. Teach your team whilst keeping an open mind to their ideas.
