Management in general usage, is a word that often identifies a special group of people whose job it is to direct activities of other people towards common objectives. It is a process used by managers and defines what managers do-their techniques in coordinating activities of other people.
Therefore, an individual in charge of handling or overseeing the affairs of management is known as a manager. All sorts of organizations, government establishments, business enterprises, hospitals, co-operatives, profit or nor profit organizations, needs a good management to function effectively. Good management should get people put in their best effort, understand their emotional, physical and psychological makeup and as well, appreciate that each member of the group has his/her own personal needs and aspirations which are influenced by factors within and outside the working environment.
More so, a good manager requires interpersonal communication skill that would enable him relate very effectively with his staff. Since the goal of every management lies in the achievement of organizational goals, the entire members of the management team should work tirelessly in a coordinated manner in order to attain expected result. But failure to achieve these organizational goals, the management is often accused of lack of initiative, ineptitude, misconduct, unqualified and this most time prompts the resignation or sack of that management.
