Lessons About Effective Management

Check out this article on management advise by Elizabeth Haas Edersheim, Ph.D.,  Management Lessons of a Lifelong Student

“I’ve learned that organizations are the engines of our society and our lives as individuals. We are born in organizations, supplied by organizations, informed by organizations, educated by organizations, employed by organizations, and ultimately buried by them. Along the way, organizations fulfill our wants and needs, entertain us, help us socialize, govern us, and sometimes frustrate and torment us. Organizations also offer the vehicles and the means for us to contribute our talents to society.

I have also learned several fundamental lessons about effective management. Though much has changed over the past 35 years, as I continue to advise CEOs and their leadership teams, I find that the lessons I’ve learned still apply, many of them more than ever.”
