Good Management

Jan 12, 2014 | Planning & Focus

Effective managers live in the present- but concentrate on the future.James L Hayes President and CEO American Management Association.

Now is a vital time for good management and leadership skills. Whether you are a micro business or a larger organisation, you need to look to the future. By concentrating on the present you often trip over issues, by looking ahead you are able to see the issues before you trip.

Good Management is different things, to different companies, with different management styles. Good management involves everything from:

  • Setting the big picture goals
  • Having clear strategies
  • Staff control – hiring and firing
  • Finance – and the budgeting processes
  • Marketing plans
  • Dealing with customers, growth and changes
  • Motivation of stakeholders, employees
  • How you manage the every-day crisis

Leadership is also a vital part of company success. The role model of respect for all stakeholders, clients, staff and many others who you make contact with everyday.

Leaders who win the respect of others are the ones who deliver more than they promise, not the ones who promise more than they can deliver. Mark A Clement.

Innovation and being unique is vitally important.

The future will always be different. New products, new ways of servicing a need and new customers education will all play a part in your future.
