Management is the process of planning, organising, leading, and controlling an organisation’s human and other resources to achieve business goals. More importantly though, effective management needs to be a process of human interaction and compassion.
Management is not a simple skill but an art requiring great feats of organisation, financial nouse and people skills. The nature of life is such that you will always come across people who challenge you. They may be your family, friends, managers or employees. The hardest thing might be to admit that you could be part of the problem.
Most bad managers don’t know they are bad. They may well admit that they are a bit erratic, or they are sometimes late to appointments, but it is rare that they will recognise that they are ineffective as managers. Never fear…read here. This book has something to offer even the best of managers.
The “Management” Ebook is ideal for anyone who wants to improve how they manage or is new to management.
