Never has the management environment been more challenging. Many observers now conclude that in these turbulent times the role of the manager is the most difficult and stressful within organisations. Their consequent mantra is that if management is tough: it must require a tough response? However, this suggestion is frequently misinterpreted and evidenced by “toxic management” and displays of over assertive controlling behaviours and micromanagement. Time and again research has proved such practices to have some immediate impact, but in the longer term deliver detrimental and corrosive relationships and poorer team performance. So just what is “tough management”? It is important that the term is clearly defined for those in management
Essentially, it is an approach seeking to engage, enlighten and enable the workforce to collaboratively respond to the ever-increasing demands of the business environment. It offers a perspective of management excellence achieved by recognising and acknowledging that all teams are comprised of different people, with different goals and motivations, different skills and personal traits. Within this diverse framework, tough management requires that each individual can precisely identify and prioritise pressing business needs. Essentially it is a pragmatic approach to work, built on inspired, management that aligns and encourages people development through collaborative practices that consistently target productivity, results, customer service. It therefor responds to the current and ever-increasing organisational pressure of “doing more with less”.
