Synopsis

Management may be defined as all the activities carried out by one or more people with the aim of planning and controlling the activities of other people so that an objective can be achieved that would not have been possible through individuals acting independently. There are several parts to the concept of management: Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Leading and Controlling.

We can talk all we like about the management functions of planning, organizing, leading and controlling, but these say little about the human aspect of managing, which is dealing with people on a day-to-day basis. Creating the right conditions for motivation to be possible in the workplace is far more challenging.

Management is about dealing with people in the most effective manner. Such abilities may come more naturally to some than others, but the dynamics of the average workplace require that managers are able to instinctively respond correctly, whatever the situation.

Effective management involves building a powerful skill set that cannot be learned by rote from a book. The worst outcome of poor managerial planning is that the survival of the organization itself can be jeopardized, which could have clear and dire consequences for all employees.

Managing other people has ample rewards when you are able to see how your team is benefiting and growing under your expert governance, but it is just as easy to get it wrong if you do not pay attention to managerial pitfalls.
