The paper "Problems That the Administrative Staffs of Better Business Solutions Are Facing" is a brilliant example of a case study on management. It has always been argued that a supervisor/leader of administrative staff can create or destroy the working condition for them. A transformational leader who is flexible to changes can take decisions for the betterment of the organization and its staff, while an adamant and egoistic leader can halt the inclusive growth of the organization as well as the career development of the staff working under him/her. Comparing these perquisites of a good supervisor or leader with the one at Better Business Solutions, who is responsible for recruitment and appraisal of all administrative staff, we can see that he has certain fundamental weaknesses in terms of leading the team and providing the quality staff for the organization. Adaptation of wrong policies has made the situation worse for the staff members.

The climate within the corporate administrative division has become extremely problematic with high levels of stress, conflict, and absenteeism accompanied by an obvious lack of commitment and motivation typified by a number of recent resignations from administrative staff. To address these problems the CEO of Better Business Solutions must work on the problem from the root level.

Administrative reform should be brought to provide an adequate working culture for the employees. This reform must be brought gradually in phases but in order to address the immediate problems of the staff a new supervisor should be appointed and proper channels of communication should be developed to understand the needs of staff. Finally, the supervisor should work with the CEO and staff for the long term sustainable development of a new administrative environment. It has always been argued that a supervisor/leader of administrative staff can create or destroy the working condition for them.

A transformational leader who is flexible to changes can take decisions for the betterment of the organization and its staff, while an adamant and egoistic leader can halt the inclusive growth of the organization as well as the career development of the staff working under him/her. Staff members feel de-motivated and do not show any interest in working for the growth of organization under such leaders.
