Another pearl of wisdom made possible by the MSC program

Much of an MSC class day consists of studying different corporations and sharing our own work experiences. Through discussion, my classmates and I make sense of our organizational realities. One realization that sticks with me emerged in our workplace diversity class last quarter: Managers are not necessarily the people with the best technical skills, but they’re the ones with the ability to organize, plan, and communicate. Recognizing this truth was so important to me, both in understanding placement of people in teams and also in developing my own abilities for a management position. The technical aspects of a job are certainly important, but they do not ensure good management. Instead, many managerial skills depend on developing relationships with people. It has become apparent good management skills are applicable across all fields. This is yet another reason I appreciate the MSC program. It focuses on skills that can put you ahead and improve your experience at work, whatever your job may be.
