Personality and Interest Inventory


Organizational success is dependent on leaders and their managers. It is important to understand the personalities of managers influence their administrative management style, their behavior and their approach to managing people and the resources under their management (Jones & George, 2013).  Some managers are demanding, difficult to get along with, and highly critical of their subordinates. Other managers may be as concerned about effectiveness and efficiency as highly critical managers but are easier to get along with (2013). They are likable, and frequently praise their subordinates. Both management styles may produce excellent results, but their effects on employees are quite different. We will explore the manager’s personality traits in Week 2.
