Abstract

The “Manager Imperative” is to get things done through assigned staff and administrative components. It asserts that there is no one best way to manage and that managers adapt their style to the situation. Effective managers continually hone their craft just like an effective medical professional continually works to be a more competent doctor, researcher, or teacher.

“Managerial Intelligence” (MI) requires knowledge and skill in 2 foundations (build positive relationships and clarify expectations) and mastery of the 3Rs: define Roles (i.e., job responsibilities) and Requirements (i.e., set staff accountability standards), and clarify Rank (i.e., formal authority).
