At this event, Charles Hendriks and The Performance Management Academy will lead a presentation: NEEDED: A Revival of The Art of Management.

"We Should Be Seeing Managers As Leaders And Leadership As Management Practised Well"

"Management is a practice that depends on art, and that is learned by experience and rooted in context."

"For Mintzberg, community means caring about our work, our colleagues and our place in the world. 'The banks and other U.S. corporations were managed by egocentrics who ran companies into the ground. Human resources are downsized at the drop of a share price. What a monumental failure of management.'"

"We should be seeing managers as leaders and leadership as management practised well."

Seven Tips For Management Success

An effective manager pays attention to many facets of management, leadership and learning within organizations. So, it's difficult to take the topic of "management success" and say that the following ten items are the most important for management success. I will, however, suggest seven management success skills without which I don't believe you can be a successful manager.

The most important issue in management success is being a person that others want to follow. Every action you take during your career in an organization helps determine whether people will one day want to follow you.

A successful manager, one whom others want to follow:

  1. Builds effective and responsive interpersonal relationships. Reporting staff members, colleagues and executives respect his or her ability to demonstrate caring, collaboration, respect, trust and attentiveness.
  2. Communicates effectively in person, print and email. Listening and two-way feedback characterize his or her interaction with others.
  3. Builds the team and enables other staff to collaborate more effectively with each other. People feel they have become more - more effective, more creative, more productive - in the presence of a team builder.
  4. Understands the financial aspects of the business and sets goals and measures and documents staff progress and success.
  5. Knows how to create an environment in which people experience positive morale and recognition and employees are motivated to work hard for the success of the business.
  6. Leads by example and provides recognition when others do the same.
  7. Helps people grow and develop their skills and capabilities through education and on-the-job learning.
