Management Skills

Effective management requires many different skills and talents. Managers need to be visionary, analytical, decisive, flexible, proactive, honest, ethical, goal setters, humble, sensitive with superior leadership and human relations skills. They want to believe in continuous improvement for themselves and their people while they coach and help their team to reach higher. Understanding effective communication and knowing how to motivate are traits good managers possess. At the same time they need to learn finance, marketing, operations and sales to hold their people accountable to take action to reach organizational goals. Managing people is difficult because everyone has different needs and wants and the job of a manager is to bring out the best in all. He/she must learn how to delegate and prioritize. Learn to let go and say no but stay involved. Respond to their staff and be responsive to clients and/or customers in addition to every department or area in the organization that they serve.
