Management Principles

The four principles I live by in our organization are: planning, organizing, directing, and controlling. All of these principles are everyday practices. Without each of these principles, we would not have the necessary tools to make us successful.

Management Philosophy
Management should provide guidance, direction, leadership and finally set an example for everyone. My management philosophy is to provide an environment that leads to productive employees. I achieve this through conflict management, keeping the morale high, and providing encouragement and rewards.
