Write and essay of 150-200 words answering the following questions
1. What do you think is the biggest personal reward of being a manager? What is the biggest potential ‘downside' of being a manager?
2. Think about two different managerial-type jobs you have personally observed (within your family, as a worker, as a customer, etc.). Compare them using Stewart's concept of job dimensions. Considering each job's content as analyzed by the three dimensions, which one would you choose? Why?
3. The chapter states that effective managers need technical, interpersonal, and conceptual skills. Do all managers need these in the same mix? In other words, would some managers need more of one than of another? Why? Describe the managerial skills you think you need to work on the most and suggest how this might be done.
