$9.99

Dr. Adizes introduces the second in the series of 3 books in his Leadership Series with Management/ Mismanagement Styles:  How to Identify a Style and What to Do About It. In this book, Dr. Adizes explains why one person is unable to perform all the four roles necessary for the effective management of the organization at the same time. One cannot effectively be a producer of results, an administrator, an entrepreneur and an integrator all at once.

This book will teach you to assess and improve your management style and the management styles of your colleagues or subordinates and to understand how to form a complementary team of leaders.

The Basic Premise

Management/ Mismanagement Styles takes a deeper and extensive look at Dr. Adizes’ Management Styles first introduced in the classic “How To Solve the Mismanagement Crisis,” and book one of the Leadership Set, “The Ideal Executive.”

Here, Dr. Adizes presents a path to a workable solution and complementary team. He defines the roles of PAEI, along with their potential extreme manifestations, and focuses on the premise that different people execute separate functions. He further demonstrates that in order to manage successfully, you need to bring together managers with different approaches and ways of thinking. A difference in styles automatically creates a conflict and divergence of views even if all members of the team are mature people ready for a dialogue. At the same time, each style has its special manner of communication, and the same words spoken by representatives of different styles often have contrary meaning. All of this leads to misunderstanding and quarrels. It is extremely important to admit that conflicts and dispute are an unavoidable and even a desirable aspect of management, if you learn to channel them into the constructive framework.

Style of Presentation

Every person is a hidden PAEI, able to perform any function, but not all of them simultaneously. Whether an organization’s inclinations will develop or be wasted depends on the conditions in which the managers will work. A leader differs from a good manager in the fact that he does not only perform one of the managerial functions brilliantly, but also is an unsurpassed integrator. According to my belief, a leader is a thumb. Why is it so? A thumb can work together with any finger or with all of them – and this allows the hand to do its job.

Management/ Mismanagement Styles determines the role of management depending on its function. These four functions determine the management process, since each of them is necessary, and collectively they are sufficient for successful management. Dr. Adizes explains the roles, how they work and offers a detailed breakdown of them chapter-by-chapter, not only of the positives but also the potential improvement points.

Applicability

This book will teach you to assess and improve your management style and the management styles of your colleagues or subordinates and to understand how to form a complementary team of leaders.
