Final Answer


Running Head: MANAGEMENT


Institutional Affiliation



Effective management is expected to have the five functional practices of planning,
leading, organizing, staffing, and controlling. All managers should ensure that they can execute
these functions effectively. If not, they will fail the business. Every work place should practice
all these functions. From my personal experiences, I worked at a business that had a very strict
manager who also happened to be the owner. I was working at a salon and beauty business that
made sure that the five functions were keenly adhered to. It is important to lead by example. This
is also another trait that managers should have to ensure that their employees are part of the
Management Functions
In every organization, one of the most important functions that are adhered to is planning
(Newton, 2011). The management should know that it is their duty to have control of the
organization. This would be done by ensuring that all customers are treated well to the supplies
that would be used in the salon. The business specialized in braiding hair as well as selling
beauty products. The plan was to use the best products in the market that would attract as many
customers as possible to the business. They would be welcome in the business with a fruit juice
or wine. The beauticians were also well-trained and well paid. They ensure that all customers got
the value for their money. The pricing was also fair to all customers. Planning also requires
having goals and objectives for the future. The manager should be working to achieve certain
goals. In my case, the manager wanted to have many branches in the next five years. She was
very good at what she did....
