THE PRINCIPLES OF MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP WITHIN AN ORGANISATIONAL CONTEXT

Understanding the principles of management and leadership within an organisational context is dependent on many factors. Managers need to have a thorough understanding of an organisation’s internal environment (such as its legal status, structure, management roles, mission and vision and values and ethics). These factors influence organisational governance and management decision making. Once this is understood managers then need to be able to apply relevant leadership and management theories to different contexts and situations.

A manager who has an in-depth understanding of the principles of management and leadership will have the knowledge to lead and manage individuals, teams and projects in a variety of organisational settings.

THE KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND BEHAVIOURS TO BE EFFECTIVE IN A MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP ROLE

What makes a truly effective manager? Extensive research has been undertaken to identify the knowledge, skills and behaviours required by a manager to be effective in the role. When the requirements of a leader and manager are formally stipulated (e.g. within national occupational standards/apprenticeship standards and role specifications) this enables the performance of individual managers to be appraised. It also sets the standard for those aspiring to enter the management and leadership profession.

»

TASK 2

As part of the organisation’s strategy to develop a talent management programme, you are required to create a profile of a manager who has operational or departmental responsibilities. The aim of the profile is to present the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be effective in the management and leadership role.

To complete the profile you are required to:

  1. Assess the essential knowledge and skills required for a management and leadership role (AC3.1)
  2. Evaluate factors which impact on the selection of communication techniques required to be effective in a management and leadership role (AC3.2)
  3. Analyse the core behaviours required to be effective in a management and leadership role (AC3.3)

Guidance for completion of Task 2

  • Consider how the profile of a manager will be presented. You may present the profile in a format of your choice (i.e. narrative, table, report, or article).
  • In preparation to complete this task, take time to reflect on the knowledge, skills and behaviours that are the hallmark of an effective manager. Consider your own management experience or the experience of being managed by others.
  • Undertake independent research on the knowledge and skills required for managers and leaders operating at this level within different occupational areas or types of organisation.
  • You are not required to include every knowledge, skill, and behaviour and communication technique in the profile of a manager you develop. You should focus on those you feel are essential to the role.
  • The profile must include sub headings. You may choose to include tables and diagrams (as appropriate) to support your discussion.
  • Refer to the indicative content for each assessment criteria (AC) outlined in the unit specification. Unit CMI 501 Principles of Management and Leadership in an Organisational Context

BUILDING A CULTURE OF MUTUAL TRUST, RESPECT AND SUPPORT WITH TEAMS

The application of knowledge, skills and behaviours can enable a manager to build a culture of mutual trust, respect and support with others. The approach taken by the manager to achieve this goal is dependent on having an in-depth understanding of the organisation, individuals and teams that are managed.

Scenario

A staff welfare survey has been undertaken in your organisation. Whilst staff were pleased by the range of staff benefits that were offered to them, the survey highlighted the following areas for concern:

i. Respondents felt there was a lack of trust and respect between themselves and management.

ii. Inappropriate speech and behaviour was failing to be recognised or managed effectively.

iii. Support given by managers was inconsistent. Concerns were raised about the level of micro-management used when they felt “competently able to get on with the job”.

iv. Respondents complained of a lack of support in their work role in relation to information sharing, problem solving, and encouragement to pursue development/career opportunities.

v. Not all respondents felt able to raise personal or work concerns or issues with their manager.

A quality improvement group has been formed to review these findings. You have been asked to develop an approach for building a culture of mutual trust, respect and support with teams and individuals which will be used as a basis of discussion at the next meeting

»

TASK 3

Basing your response on the scenario or an organisation you know well or have researched:

Write a proposal which outlines how you would develop an approach for building a culture of mutual trust, respect and support with teams and individuals. (AC3.4)

Guidance for completion of Task 3

  • Choose the basis your proposal. This may be based on the scenario given above or a team from an organisation you know well or have researched.
  • The proposal may be presented in a format of your choice (i.e. narrative, report, table).
  • You are encouraged to consider the use of good practice examples from an organisation you know well or have researched.
  • You may include reference to relevant theoretical principles/models/frameworks as appropriate.
  • Please refer to the indicative content for each assessment criteria (AC) outlined in the unit specification.
  • 1.1 Examine the impact of legal status on the governance of an organisation
