Five Basic Management Styles from The Managerial Grid (9,1) - PUSH FOR PRODUCTION - supervisor makes all decisions, assigns tasks, oversees closely, is autocratic, mistakes are not tolerated, communication is unilateral and follows chain of command, this manager sets a difficult example to match, tends to be an isolationist, doesn’t ask for help. He feels his responsibilities are to plan, direct, and control the actions of others to meet the organization goals and schedules. Employees are expected to do as they are told, no more, no less. Goals are in the form of quotas and conflict is non-existent - the manager is always right. (1,9) - THE COUNTRY CLUB APPROACH - this manager wants a comfortable atmosphere at work (relaxed, friendly & happy), emphasizes the personal relationships between group members, communication is informal, group sets own goals, mgr is resource person and not viewed as boss, lots of encouragement and tolerance of mistakes, wants to be your friend. Acceptance is the goal. The first priority is for personal, social and welfare needs to be met.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
