The Successful Manager - How Do We Know?

Article by Finn Havaleschka, founder and CEO of the Garuda Corporation
"During many years, in fact since 1980, I have been engaged in finding, training, educating and developing managers, and constructing models and theories about management and developing personality tests, management role analyses and similar tools, to facilitate these activities. In all honesty, I have often ended a management development project with the feeling that the activities did not move anything. On the other hand, there has never been a person who had participated in the project without having gained further self-insight and the ability to put his/her personal qualities and competence in relation to the management of other people.

So how do we know that we have meet a good manager? When we do!"
