Descriere

Life has logical phases, and it is critical that a person develop in the profession or area of focus with natural progression. Some of the phases may be shorter based on how quick one grasp the primary concepts that make up the phase. At some point, a person will develop sufficient skills and experience to become a manager and then an executive.

Basic Executive Management Tips written by Gaster Sharpley explores the basic issues of an executive manager and documents obvious issues that need to be considered. Most people wish to be in control and also enjoy the benefits of being the boss; however, very few are willing to take responsibility and make the necessary sacrifices required. These sacrifices must include a balance between the various aspects of life that will see the executive as a complete person rather than a complete executive and a lesser human being.

As readers flip through the pages of this book, they may from time to time feel that the information contain herein is basic and plain; however, it will serve as a reminder to everyone that being an executive is a serious responsibility and at times involves decisions about other peoples lives. A successful executive is also made up of a range of issues that comes together, including the people one work with, the people one choose to work with, the board, the clients, and the service providers.

With Basic Executive Management Tips, Sharpley simply wants to impart a message to readers particularly executive managers that executives should not be considered successful only by way of their position but rather, it is because of the circumstances that goes within that position. Successful executives will always be those who are willing to assume responsibility and sacrifices not only for themselves but also for the good of those under their wings.

Preface

Life has logical phases, and it is critical that you develop in the profession or area of focus with natural progression. Some of the phases may be shorter based on how quick you grasp the primary concepts that make up the phase. At some point you will develop sufficient skills and experience to become a manager and then an executive. This publication explores the basic issues of an executive manager and documents obvious issues that need to be considered. Most people wish to be in control and also enjoy the benefits of being the boss; however, very few are willing to take responsibility and make the necessary sacrifices required. The sacrifices must include a balance between the various aspects of life that will see you being a complete person rather than a complete executive and a lesser human being.

As you read this publication, you may from time to time feel that the information is basic and plain; however, you must consider it a reminder to take being an executive as a serious responsibility as at times it involves decisions about other people’s lives. Being a successful executive is also made up of a range of issues coming together, including the people you work with, the people you choose to work with, your board, your clients, and your service providers. What am I saying? I am saying that you should not consider yourself a successful executive because of only who you are but because of who you are and the circumstances that you are in. Enjoy the book.

I Am an Executive

What will I be when I grow old, something bold I am told

An executive may unfold

I am seven and my innocence belongs in heaven

The world becomes real and circumstances take away the thrill

At age sixteen, I take the stage and try to stay clean

Again I invoke the dream and am confused that it has attempted to defused

I must keep a spark alight and keep putting up a brave fight

My world tells me to let go and go slow, but my desire remains on fire

As I up skill, possibilities I can feel

I can be an executive

I must maintain composure and build through sacrifice a composition that directs the scheme to revert to the dream

I start at the bottom so that I can appreciate reaching the top

Maturity, consistency, the right attitude—these are all attributes to lead me to my altitude

As I claim I must not tramp those I pass as my top will not last

I am an executive, I am on top but now I realise that the top is actually the bottom—as it is those at the bottom that keep you on top

Communicate, don’t procrastinate, don’t agitate as the time I
