  5. 5. Starting to Lead Action Centred Leadership (Adair) Put simply, managing the TASK is about making sure that we produce the right things, in the right way, at the right time, to the right standards. Managing individuals is about getting the best out of people: Setting clear standards, giving them support and tackling underperformance so that AS A BUSINESS we achieve the TASK. This is about managing fairly and openly to motivate an engage people so that they are willing (as well as able) to achieve the TASK. This is what builds our future.
