Prepare a report on your findings remembering to include the importance of these elements to the function of management within a tourism, hospitality, events, gastronomic, business organisation and from the perspective of a Master Manager.You should also include reference to the addiotnal question / topic that we covered in the 3rd week of Blog #2

Reflecting on Management – Part A
Quinn et al. (2011) states that the mode of management shall include the various set of approaches, tools of management, competencies, etc. and using which concerned manager can undertake the resolution of the problems at workplace as well as make suitable decisions. The same in consequence shall enable the workforce under concerned manager to be effective and consistently work for better outcomes with respect to the their organization.
I had earlier identified that the strength / value as a manager I saw myself to be an empathetic mentor, undertake effective monitoring, a competent co-ordinator as well as innovator. In this context, the initial survey undertaken by me using competing value framework of Quinn et al. (2011) was provided a spiderweb with competing competencies. The assessment of the same indicated that I need to enhance my competence and effectiveness as a
oker as well as facilitator. The same stems from the fact that for one to work in an efficient manner as manager, the manager needs to be an effective

oker as well as the facilitator of changes as the same shall aid in the implementation of critical changes across the organization, and, that the same needs to be inculcated by me as I found that I was lacking in the same. This conscious understanding led me to a focus and emphasis to enhance these competences by way of undertaking efforts integrated with respect to my work and various educational activities to eventually develop the same as a competence. In this context, I undertook efforts like that of consciously practicing and illustrating actions,...
