...an important aspect in commanding and the demand of respect as well as recognition. This has evolved with time, new & modern technologies, fashion, grand car designs and the different types of acquired and preferred tastes in choices of fashion brands & class. Social situations make some of the greatest influences in fashion, style, accessories as well as the type of car you are to purchase. In ‘todays’ era we have an amazing range of cars to choose from and our intrinsic motivation comes from affordability, durability, brand communications, neediness, technology, social media as well social status. As I took a visit to GM Motors in Gaborone to look at some of the most popular car brands & style that Batswana men love to own, The General Manager ‘ Daryl’ described to me 3 different types of drivers we have in Botswana; The Family man; The young and aspiring youthful gentleman and the locally travelled gentleman. This made perfect sense to me because I realized how everyone of those gentlemen are different and part of where their influence in style and fashion may be derived. Fashion and style for men in Botswana used to be one of the nonfactors in consideration, how ever taken back 20 years ago, I remember Batswana men to have been a lot more fashion conscious and forward than women.

...Chapter 1: The Job of the General Manager A fundamental challenge facing general managers today stems from the fact that the external environment in which their organization operates-which includes current customers, potential customers, competitors, technological innovation, government, suppliers, global forces and so on-is changing so rapidly that the firm, with its finite resources and limited organizational capabilities, is hard-pressed to keep up (which it must do because of the rapidly changing environment). The Job of the General Manager The general manager’s job is to create value of the enterprise. You need to recognize emerging opportunities and challenges, prepare a response, and ensure the success of whatever plan of action you decide upon. After establishing a long-term direction and creating the strategy, the general manager must make important decisions such as making drastic reductions in the workforce, develop new technologies/capabilities, face new competitors, develop new distribution channels, establish new customer relationships, and convince employees/investors that it is moving in the right direction. Fundamental Components of the GM’s Job 1. Setting Direction 2. Creating Strategy 3. Implementing Change 4. Assessing Performance 1) Assessing Performance Our assessment of organizational performance is based on two sets of measures: a) operating performance - quantitative measures of financial and market......

5 General Style of Manager

...Manager by “Kayod”. “kayod” is a term which refers to “hard work” or “sweating out” to achieve goals or produce something. This kind of manager tends to be action-hungry, has strong or strict working ethics and usually refuses any kind or form of bribery. Priority-oriented with a strong inclination to gut feeling, this kind of manager seeks for optimum and maximum performance from their subordinates and has gift for identifying and utilizing people and resources to address problems in the workplace. Practical and pragmatic, he or she tends to decide fast and demands faster solution to workplace problems. Impatient and impulsive, this manager tends to demand higher performance from subordinates according to his or her standards, although if properly related to, he/she could provide practical guidance and break down workloads into manageable size. Working under them is like riding a roller-coaster that never ends, and worst, they love to be the operator of that rides which means, no getting down. How to manage them is the direct opposite to operating a roller coaster: be the first to volunteer to get down before the daze becomes overwhelming. Hard worker as they know themselves to be, “Manager by Kayod” needs people to remind them that their strength is not boundless, so as the rest of the team, and the reminder would be much appreciated if given as direct feedback in a friendly manner, treating him or her as a colleague rather than a boss.

" ...Defense firm such as General Dynamics and TRW, and an information company, Dun & Broadstreet, have appointed internal ethics officers or ombudsmen. Whether employees have faith in these safeguards against corporate retaliation is hard to tell, though it is one step forward (The Economist August 19 1995) The ethical codes of corporations that that get so important nowadays also did not come into being at once. They emerged from individual ethical standards and corporate consciousness. Moreover, the public demand for prosecution of any violations of corporate, professional and business ethics has been increased. Finally, mass media made possible for society reveal secrets that were kept from public before. So, the business conduct regulations were created to "draft guidelines for ethical conduct, develop a process for monitoring business practices and recommend ways to correct questionable activities." (J.Byrne) All these measures were taken to balance various social responsibilities with the high degree of moral and sense of attainment. Unfortunately, cooperation of unethical behavior of a manager with a journalist may lead to an undesirable results. "Early in December 1995 , Smart Money's editor-at-large James J.
