Role Of Manager In The OrganizationDocument Transcript
Role of Manager in the Organization
Most of the time the mangers in the organization are confused lot about what there role is. They
are more concerned about the micro part of there responsibilities & could not concentrate more on
the macro aspect of the management responsibility which he has to execute.
Broadly we can divide the role of a manager into two parts. One is objective & the other one is
subjective. The objective part is basically to run the business in efficient manner. Manager has to
ensure that the objective goals of the organizations are achieved. The day to day business is run
smoothly & to remove any obstacle which come on the way. This is what comprises the objective
role of a manager & most of the time we find mangers are bogged down with this part only. The
most important role of a manager is to identify, nurture & groom employees who would
ultimately becomes future business leaders of the organization. Most of the managers forget this
role & concentrate on running day to day business & are more concerned with increasing
profitability for the organization.
There is nothing wrong with the profitability factor but if an organization has to run successfully
for maximum numbers of years, it has to churn out leaders all across the organization constantly.
In the name of developing leaders most of the managers will take into there shelter few numbers of
employee who understand better than other employees what there boss wants. He will provide all
the necessary support & back up so they look good & after some time will promote them. Its
human tendency to like the people who talks good about you & who praises you but if a manager
wants to be a successful for longer duration, he has to understand the success of an organization
depends on the shoulder of employees who has diverse skills & competencies. One type of people
will not be able to get you success for a long time. He has to develop leaders all across the
organization. There is another danger if you are surrounded by the people who only appreciate
your work & never criticizes him, gradually they will be turning you to have a false feeling of
supremacy. Ultimately you will be trapped into, I am great syndrome, which will slowly reduce
your willingness to learn new things & with the passage of time will fade into oblivion. If we want
not to happen this we must pay more attention to the macro part of our role as a manager & that’s
all about identify, groom, and motivate employees from all spectrum of the organization into a
future business leader. This can be achieved successfully by keeping aside your personal likings or
disliking & judging the employee on his capacity to execute the job efficiently, his keenness &
ability to learn new competencies, ability to perform in a team & his assimilation & understanding
of organization culture. It’s a chain reaction; managers develop people into becoming leader who
are directly working under them. They in turn develop people into leaders who are working under
them & the process goes down to the lowest level of employee of the organization. How it is being
ensured that the process is working?
There are two methods by which organization can find out whether the leadership program is
being successfully implemented. One the organization should conduct employee survey
periodically from outsize agencies & second to have close tab on employees appraisal card. Both
these tools will be immensely helpful to the managers to understand in which direction there
organization will be heading. In the last it is his will power & sincerity will decide whether he
wants to be a manager only, or for a long period to come he wants to be remembered by his peers
as a true leader.
