“Practice Golden Rule Number One of Management in everything you do. Manage others the way you would like to be managed.”
Effective management. It almost seems like a catch-all phrase these days. But, the fact is, whether it’s a small business manager or a big time corporate manager – some are effective and some aren’t.
What exactly does it mean to be effective? Being the "effective" researcher that I am, I googled it for us so we can be clear. Here is what The Free Dictionary give us:
1. a. Having an intended or expected effect. b. Producing a strong impression or response; striking: gave an effective performance as Othello.

3. Existing in fact; actual: a decline in the effective demand.
4. Prepared for use or action, especially in warfare.
