Management Defined

One of my favorite blogs, What’s Best Next, quotes Stephen Covey’s definition of management saying, “Management is developing people through tasks.”The blog post further goes on to state,

This brings in the human component. Management is not just about getting things done, but developing people in the process. The result is, ironically, that you will in turn be able to get even more done in the future, since whenever a manager’s team is productive they are at the same time increasing in their productive capacity.But that is not why you manage in this way. You manage with this goal in mind because it is the right way to treat people — that is, because you are managing people, not machines.

I am so thankful to have a boss that exemplifies this and I want to make an effort to be more like this!
