Why are you passionate about business management?
I truly believe that business management is in a process of change, especially with the recent events of the pandemic. It has changed the structure and organisation of the workplace in general.
More focus should be placed on modern management, meaning that managers should learn more in demand skills such as emotional intelligence, trust-based management and outcomes-based management.
Traditional management theories still provide valid explanations, but now more than ever, managers are required to become modern leaders.
I have worked in a completely different cultural setting with a contrasting view about being an ‘ideal manager’. This allowed me to successfully reflect and evaluate myself when I progressed to a managerial position.
I would say that this unique combination of an authoritative to fully laissez faire manager style allows me to transfer my experience and share it with our students - future business managers.
