Before embarking on any business, there is the need to, first of all, have some form of education about that business and know what it entails. Many business setups have closed shop and some are at the edge of collapse because they are not properly grounded and because the business owners did not take time to study and do proper planning before embarking on it. There are different forms of business and each of these forms have challenges uniquely known to them.
Apart from that, the business owner should possess certain skills and entrepreneurial spirit to be able to drive the business to success.
Founding a business is no much of hard work like sustaining it. This is where management comes in. It takes more effort and resources to keep or manage a business than founding it in the first place. Come to think of it, why is it that some business setups have folded up not even taking up to a decade to run while some on the other hand have spent even more than a century and are still during very well. The answer is management. It is not all about how rich you, although money is part of what makes a business going but then even when the money is there, without knowledge, one might be spending money on the wrong thing or wasting the money and leaving what should be done unattended to. Hence, it is very important for anyone going into business to be educated on management.
This is another vital aspect that many business managers don’t even note. Being a manager does not make one a good leader. It is one thing to know how to manage, it is another thing to know how to lead.
It should be noted that whereas management cuts across every area of the business, leadership has to do more with people and how leaders relate with them.
Although, to be a very effective and highly influential manager, one should be a good leader, but not every managers are good leaders and some managers do not even see reasons why they should take one course in leadership, what they are after is getting the job done and inasmuch as that is achieved, then no need for addressing how to be a good leader or whether or not one is a good leader.
It is always good to build the right leadership culture and traits and also be a good manager. This way, one would be able to achieve a lot in a little time and record many achievements and successes.
