Management The experience during the (name of course) at (name of College) has given me a broader view on managment. With the vast amount of material given to me in class with prior modules, Ive increased my understanding of an effective management. Ones skill in management requires constant practice. Mangers who grow too complacement or too lazy to continue practicing will eventually find their carrer in decay. In this paper, I will present my concept of an ideal managment environment.
Good management is practiced in many forms and in a great diversity of business situations. There are basic principles of how to manage, but they would be applied differently in different situations. In an effective organization led by good managers, there is a clear set of strategic objectives I consider skill essential in an effective management: Communication Motivation Listening Teamwork Interpersonal Skill Goals After I explain the six essential skills in an effective management, I will state my own style/preferences in management and explain how Ill try to incorporate them into my effective management views. There are many more concepts I have learned about effective management but I will focus on what areas I believe can relate to my needs in my organization. It is worthy to note that a successful organization have managers who have a great deal of flexibility in establishing a workable leadership style. Successful managers, in addition, realize that times, tasks, and circumstances change on a daily basis.
Communication Nothing could be easier than failing to communicate. For many years, managers think they can belittle their employees with the Im the boss, get to work attitude. It is different today in most places. More poeople are beginning to understand how important good comunication really is. Communicating well is something every one of us does everday in our lives.
However, effective communication seems to be rare in adults. There are some basic concepts that can be implemented to have a successful communication. They are making communication a top priority, being open to other people, and creating a receptive enviornment for communication. First, Ive learned that I must make time to communicate with my subordinates no matter how busy I find myself during the work day. All my brilliant ideas are worthless if I dont share them. Second, if I can show my colleagues I am receptive to their ideas, they are more likely to be receptive to me and to keep me honestly informed about the things I need to know.
Ive learned that a good organization has people caring about the future of the organization and that top managements care as much about their people. Finally, its a basic fact that people wont say what they think and wont listen receptively to what you say unless a foundation of trust and shared interest has been laid. In an effective management environment, people shouldnt be punished for their openness; especially in situation when they took the risk to tell you what they think. For example, if I am in a position when someone disagrees with my plan and tried to make a suggestion, Id be very delicate about the way I tell them I dont agree with them. However, Id encourage them to come back to me the next time and make another suggestion. Motivation I see an importance in having a skill to motivate people.
In an effective managment environment, leaders should show the employees that he will take risks and encourages them to do the same. In the past modules, Ive learned that using fear is a poor motivator. Companies that are run on that basis will end up with a work force of resentful employees. An ideal environment would be a place where someone feel a real sense of purpose, the feeling that they are valuable. This is where I believe a true motivation comes from, not just to work but to excel.
To do this, I believe people need to be recognized, be included, be encouraged, and be involved. Glory should be shared with everyone in an organization and a clear understanding how value individuals are. Id like to see employees be given the freedom to work as they see fit, and convey their belief in their abilities by getting out of the way. In other words, an effective leader in an organziation should show people that he trus! t, respect, and care about his people. As a result, he will be surrounded by motivated people.
Another way to motivate people is to express genuine interest in others. Ive learned that managers shouldnt be remote. They need to touch base with people on a regular basis so that everyone knows there is a time when theyre actually going to be accessible with me. People respond to people who are available and sincrely interested in them. One of the most basic facts of human psychology is that we are flattered by other peoples attention.
An example would be offering an open, friendly, interested greeting to a new person in the offfice. There is nothing more effective and rewarding than showing a genuine interest in other people Listening There are two very good reasons to listen to other people. You learn things that way, and people respond to those who listen to them. The importance of listening apply for anyone who hopes to communicate with others. Listening is the single most important of all the communication skills.
More important than a powerful voice and the ability to speak several langauges. Good listening is where effective communication begins. Many people think listening is passive, talking is active but this is not true. Active listening requires an intense involvement in a conversation. Concentration is a skill needed to listen well. An environment with an effective managment has to have a good listening leaders in the management department. Id like to be in an organization where it is comfortable to work in.
Nobody is more persuasive than a good listener. Listening is still the best …
