Administrative Manager .
Successful managers are very self-disciplined, intelligent, responsible and presentable people. An Administrative Manager would need to be positive, …enthusiastic, have good leadership skills, get on well with people, be firm but just and have the ability and perseverance to try and help the company achieve their goals. She/he should be able to motivate people and make them feel that they are an important cog in the business wheel. The employees should know that management is trying their best to make life for everyone in the company as profitable, productive and enjoyable as possible, so that they will be much more likely to concentrate on doing their best. Every worker in a business is given a specific task or tasks to do by the manager who does the planning, co-ordinating and organising of activities to reach the required goals and she/he would be the one to give orders and exercise control over the entire process..
