According to Nancy Bazilchuk
Management is a process in which an individual encourages a group to reach a common goal.
Most studies of different management styles show that managers who care about their employees and trust that the employees themselves know best how to do their job get the best results, says Martinsen.
But despite this, there are very few job advertisements that actually include these characteristics in the job description for an executive position, he said.
“Obviously, ‘We’re looking for a manager who is kind of nice’, is a little too soft,” he said.
Many company boards would prefer to hire a “result-oriented, focused leader”, but Martinsen says it’s a myth that this is the most effective management form for a company.
