Because of the importance of the concept of management in the work area, as well as the various roles that are vital for the survival of the particular area of expertise, is also the need to have the defined roles and levels of understanding in order to manage everything effectively. Management is not just a way to understand how to relate to others and how to factor in leadership roles. It is also important to factor in the approaches towards responding to employees and individuals in the internal and external environment.
An understanding of the mentality of those around managers, and how this is affected by things such as culture will allow for managers to reach a more thorough understanding of how to interrelate with those in the work place. The purpose of this report is to examine the different ways in which management can be approached, as well as the different theories that allow for a new sense of leadership to be formed. Specifically, this report will define the needs that are a part of an organization which will allow for the correct sense of leadership to be a part of the work force.
This will be seen through the concepts of culture and how it links to those who are working as well as what their mentality is. By examining these different approaches, managers, leaders and those involved in business can have the necessary styles of leadership and management in order to effectively build the environment needed for functioning. Leadership Theories That Link With CultureIn order to correctly define the specific types of management and how they can be used, it is important to first define the theories and styles that are pursued in the work force.
Understanding these different approaches will allow for different concepts to be built into the work area and will create the capacity to build effective leadership that is able to work through management and to the employees. Specifically, is the need to understand how culture relates to leadership and effects the functioning of those in the work force.
One of the first theories linked to leadership is not with leadership alone, but how the environment responds to different types of leadership styles. Within each organization is an environment that is based off of the mixture of individuals who are working within the business and interactions with how they respond to each other. This is not important only because of the environment, but also because the types of leadership will cause a difference in the social behaviors that are within the environment. This is known as the strategic environment, and not only causes a difference within the organization, but also one that moves into the relationships with customers and those in the external environment (Sheldrake, 2002).
In relation to the theories of how the social environment effects the internal environment is also the individual relations and how this is affected by culture, politics and the external forces that are brought into the work environment. This gives managers the need to add in value added resources and to find alternative responses towards new and innovative ways to incorporate the specific ideals that come to them in relation to the cultural concepts that are in place.
