The twenty-first century managers must continually strive to achieve excellence in all management activities. In fact, great managers will always strive to do things better. They understand that the pursuit of excellence in all areas of life is endless, and that each advance sets stage for the next.
They crave to become outstanding in three distinct domains: their own individual performance, the collective performance of the unit under their jurisdiction, and the external environment. Winning in these three areas makes them excellent managers who foster organizational excellence, which constantly measures itself against the best and surpasses the benchmark to set new standards.
This implies that, managerial excellence fulcrums on effective leadership skills that involves achieving results through others by enhancing and depending on the contribution of others. Mobilizing those contributions is the task of leaders at all levels. In the excellent organization, the person at the top is a leader of leaders and that means everybody who plays a part in its success should be endowed with excellent leadership acumen. The broader the numbers contributing positively to achieving excellence, the higher the standard of performance and the longer it lasts.
The excellent manager knows that peaks are followed by troughs unless you constantly renew the pursuit of the best. Excellence fades unless when the organization continually sharpens the saws at all levels of the organization.
