I think that two of the most important traits that a manager can have to accomplish effective management are knowledge and approachability.

I believe that knowledge is important for any manager. A manager should know the in’s and the out’s of the business that he or she is managing. One reason that companies have managers are so that employees can have a go too person for information about the job he or she is doing, and another is so that senior management can have a go too person for information on how the employees are doing. Knowledge is power with power comes great responsibility. The managers knowledge can affect the ethical culture of any business by showing employees and customers of the business that the company knows what they are doing. Sears is a good example of a lack of knowledge. Sears has been without a reliable CEO who knows how to handle a business and now Sears is struggling because the current interim CEO does not know how to handle a business of that size. (Gorenstein, 2009) Not having knowledge is crippling.

The next big managerial trait that a manager must have is the ability to be approached. If a manager can be approached about anything, good or bad, it shows the employees of the company that he or she is dependable and reliable for good information. It allows employees to feel good about being able to go to the management team with any and everything. Having an approachable attitude allows managers the ability to stay informed while the unapproachable manager may be left out and clueless as to what is going on within the company.
