What You Need to Know About Organizational Management to Be a Leader       

Published: July 1, 2020

Even before you learn how to help manage an organization, you need to understand how it’s put together. That way you’ll know who reports to whom, where you fit into the bigger picture, and how you can be the best employee possible. Then, organizational management will teach you how to use tools and resources to help things run well. Whether you supervise a few employees or none at all, you can still display leadership skills in your role—if you understand how everything works.

Here are 5 key aspects to effective organizational management that could help you become a good leader.

1. Strong Decision-Making Skills

Effective management requires you to make good decisions quickly and guide the people who might report to you to do the same. Some decisions are small and involve how you perform your day-to-day job. But others may impact your coworkers, your supervisors, and the people you serve. Good ethics in business should be your foundation. It’s easier to make the right decision when you know right from wrong from the start.

2. Clear, Effective Communication

It is critical for any good leader to be a great communicator. You need to understand how the lines of communication work within your organization and how to keep the end goal in mind. For example, if you work in healthcare management, the end goal is always to provide the best patient care possible. Why is good communication so critical? Because everyone needs to be on the same page to treat patients effectively.

You need to communicate clearly, whether you speak or write, regardless of how diverse your team may be from one another or how different they may be from you. Good leaders make sure they are understood and that their team knows what action to take. They also listen to questions and concerns employees have and address them quickly.

3. Conflict Resolution Methods

Good organizations have clearly defined rules about how to resolve conflicts. As a leader, you’ll need to follow those rules and make sure others do, as well. Strong, well-thought-out strategies that outline how to deal with conflict in the best ways possible are important. They help ensure that when disputes do arise, you understand how to help find a solution that considers everyone’s best interests.

4. Goal-Oriented Focus

When you lead others, you need to know why and what the goals are. This is good for you as a way to find motivation, and it’s good for those you lead. If they ever lose sight of why they’re doing what they do, you can help them get back on track. It also helps to support your organization’s vision for the future and provides a path to achieve it.

5. Ability to Encourage Teamwork and Talent

To reach an end goal, you need the right people in place who can also work well together. As a leader, you will need to understand the importance of teamwork and how to encourage it. You’ll also need to know what kind of talent you need and what each worker might offer. What strengths do they have and how can you support them and help them grow?
