    Description

    The challenge for management is to ensure that the value and impact of people's outputs are greater than the cost of their inputs. Some measurements can include finances, growth, and employee satisfaction surveys. The role of a manager is sometimes that of an an expert and other times as a facilitator/ coach. A manager helps align organizational goals with an employee's individual aspirations. A balance in leadership should be achieved between topdown direction and participative management.
