Management is above all a practice where art, science and craft meet. Becoming a good manager is perhaps one of the most difficult skill sets to develop consistently and apply on a day to day basis. That’s because it’s a practice made up of many disciplines. To be a good manager you need to be a good leader, inspire motivate and influence.

But you also need to have an excellent grasp on other things, like planning, budgeting, disciplining, delegating and countless more. The success or failure of your organisation depends on your ability to skilfully balance it all. So there’s no room for half heartedness and little room for failure.
