Effective Management

I read a wonderful article from the Harvard Business Review called, "Reclaim Your Job" by Sumantra Ghoshal and Heike Bruch. Something really stood out to me about leadership: "When managers complain about lack of time and resources, they’re really expressing their fear of taking action." In order for managers to be more effective and operate independently, they must learn to:
  1. Manage demands
  2. Generate resources
  3. Recognize and exploit alternatives
The authors gives examples of managers that have demonstrated each of these principles and achieved success. You can only view the entire article if you have a subscription, but you can read a little of the article on the Harvard Business Review site.
