In the department that enables managers to have

In my understanding
managing people in organizations is the department that enables managers to
have a better understanding of the interchange between administration
activities in the business procedure, and it is something very important
nowadays because it is a way to produce the best outcomes and accomplish
efficiency and effectiveness in the organization. Efficiency and effectiveness
are two words that are commonly misused and misinterpreted for the way they
sound. However, they are two different words with both a different meaning. The
difference between those words is that efficiency is about doing things right
in an optimal way while effectiveness is about doing the things right.
Efficiency and effectiveness in management are essential in order to pursue the
company’s mission.

     Management theories are
implemented to help increase organizational productivity and service quality.
Not many managers use a singular theory or concept when implementing strategies
in the workplace1.
Concepts and theories relating to people management include personality, perception, communication,
motivation and group dynamics. In which every one of them has their own meaning
and purpose. Some years from now and based on the concepts and theories I can
clearly imagine how will it be. Before all else, to be more precise and to give
a better understanding of the meaning of culture and core values which are
essential for every company. Culture is something that constantly surrounds an
individual in its workplace; it is something that shapes your pleasure for
work, relationships with people, and your work processes. However, culture can
be seen only through physical appearances in a working environment. Culture can
resemble with personality, where on the one hand a person’s personality is
comprised by the qualities, interests, experiences, and habits that create a
person’s behavior and on the other hand organizational culture is comprised by
the life experiences employees have had and has been shared to the organization.
Culture has particularly impacted the entrepreneur, administrators, and other
administrative staff because of their leadership and strategic directions. Moreover,
core values are what it exactly sounds it means that is the center and it is
important for a company as it benefits it by supporting the visions, shaping
the culture and reflecting what is valuable by the company. Core values provide
advantages to the organization which could either be internal or external such
as helping it in its decision-making processes and also it teaches customers
and potential clients about what the organization is really about and clarifies
the identity of the company.

     To start
with, the working environment I imagine will definitely be a working
environment consisted of people with different nationalities and cultures, in
which every one of them has their own personalities and way of working. But no
matter how they are they should all be accepted for the way they are because
they are still people who have their own rights and obligations. Most of the
time people of different nationalities are underestimated because others
believe that they can’t do everything for what they are and it’s something that
should decrease and not increase as time passes by. To begin with, a great way
to build a strong culture within the working environment is to show and make
people feel how it feels being underestimated for what they are by doing some
kind of activities since we know that racism has been a big problem over the
past few years between people of different nationalities. Another important
element that makes a great company culture is by having employees know the
values and mission of the company. As Mark Zuckerberg says “if
an employee isn’t committed to the mission, it just becomes another job. And
when it’s just another job, it usually means the employee isn’t happy. On the
other hand, when the employee is on board with the mission, they’re engaged in
the job and want to help the mission succeed, thus helping the company succeed”2.
Which means no matter what the employees do if they don’t enjoy it then what’s
the point of continuing the job? But when
employees are passionate about the values and mission they are dedicated to
accomplishing the goal. Before hiring people we should ask them the
reason why they want to work and how well they fit the position, in order to
know how serious they are about what they will be facing afterward. In addition,
employees should always work as a team and not as individuals to avoid competition
and any kind of disputes in between them. By working together there is a
greater possibility of accomplishing their mission. Furthermore, as company
leaders, we should focus more on the achievements rather than the failures of
our employees. It’s something that can make them feel more comfortable and
happy because they know that they have made the right thing and became part of
the company.

     Every company has its own goals and
objectives that are meant to be achieved sometime. As its future leader, the
role and responsibilities that I would take in action are those that I am
confident of and will definitely lead to adequate results. As mentioned above,
failures should never be taken as a disadvantage for an employee; everyone
makes mistakes and learns from them. It is very important to celebrate
employee’s success so that everyone can see how well they have done, the
milestone they have achieved. It is a great way to enhance assurance and keep employees
engaged. Also, another way to achieve company goals is by hosting brainstorming
session where every individual may take part in the creation of a project by
giving their own ideas. That way they will start feeling much more appreciated
and that they are really a part of the company’s development and at the same
time the company will benefit from the knowledge of the company team. Though
project must be broken into smaller ones since we know that it is difficult for
an employee to complete a project as a whole, it’s best to be separated into
groups where each of them will be assigned differently. When the group has
completed their project within the deadline given, the next step is to analyze
all of them and focus on the mistakes so the next time they can be ready in
case a big project comes. Staying focused is as well a way of accomplishment, as
we know each company has different goals which could either be long-term or
short-term. As the company grows and new members enter it, it gets more
difficult to keep in track of the goals since they haven’t witness past
successes and failures of the company. In order to keep everyone on track, it
is important that the team stays focused and works hard so that they can reach
their goals and objectives altogether. I believe that the previous mentions are
essential in order to achieve in the company’s needs, of course, we know that there
a lot more ways that lead to achievements, but given the chance, those are the
things I would take in action.

     Conflicts and disputes are something
normal within a working environment which is bound to happen and cannot be
avoided. They may happen for a variety of reasons such as feeling lack of
appreciation, jealousy, promotion opportunities, competitiveness, salary
disputes, pride, and ego in between employees and so on. Of course, it’s best to
stay away from them as much as possible, because no matter how small the
misunderstanding is we never know what could come next. If such case happens we
as individuals, should maturely approach the situation and try to resolve the
issue. A communication process should be taken in action in order to solve the
disputes and conflicts. The first step to conflict resolution is to discuss the
situation and be specific; it is a great opportunity to listen to both sides of
explanations. Secondly, it should be discussed how the conflict may impact in
the working environment and the employees. Apart from that, the reason of the
conflict should also be discussed in order to find ways to solve the issue. If nothing
is done it could lead to unexpected situations and lastly, employees should
always remember not to make any work issues to personal issues.

     To conclude, it is very important for a
leader to develop good management skills and organizational competencies within
the working environment in order to get the best possible results and achieve
efficiency and effectiveness. By building a strong culture in the working team
not only will the company succeed in its goals and objectives but also the
whole team will be happy and contended giving it a small possibility for
conflicts and disputes to occur.
