Many employees may be from different culture background or have different perceptions which mean that manager needs to have the skills to communicate with all employees. Political skills: is the ability to handle a range of different views and opinions and be able to a decision base on different views and opinions. A manager at Cadbury Schweppes needs to be able to make the right decision based on staff opinions. A manager can not just dismiss the opinions of staff, as this would make the staff feel unwanted and discourage the staff from working hard. For example, staff at Cadbury Schweppes might have different opinions of what they think their customers want best, the manager needs to have the political ability to take into account the opinions of staff and then make a decision what customers want best Evaluation of whether, style of management contributes towards the success or failure of Cadbury Schweppes. To be a good employer and sustain a working environment that attracts retains and develops committed employees who share in the success of the Cadbury Schweppes. The organisational structure is bound to help the employees in a number of ways. Firstly they will all know whom they are directly responsible for and where they are in the organisational structure. It also makes it easier for the managers to see how the working environment helps people they are directly responsible for. Management styles will differ depending on the objective they are working on. The organisational structure will probably affect certain objectives more than others. In my opinion the main objectives that it affects are: Strong & consistent financial performance: I think this because the strong and consistent financial performance can be monitored carefully by the finance department to make sure that marketing is not costing too much and to make sure that they are spending enough on other like customer service Democratic management styles could help the employees to feel more inspired and work more efficient and effective, and causing more productivity (Motivation staff has lead to an increase in sales from �2.3bn rising by to 4.3 in 2004). ...read more.

Conclusion

This also shows that both managers would need to use political skills so that they can interact with their employees, which will again make it easier for the subordinates to clearly understand what is needed to achieve the planning. For example, both managers communicate and interact with their employees so that their plan can be completed with out any constraints. However as there always is constraints in the businesses functions the managers from both companies would also need to have good problem solving skills so that constraints can easily and quickly managed. Motivation and developing staff is very important for both businesses because this function can help them to achieve the company's objectives. As I said before, Hussein generally uses an autocratic style of management to motivate their employees because the company director thinks differently towards his employees (he think the employees are lazy and are only committed to do due to money) especially the lower level of management and the workers. When both businesses are planning as a function for their company, they both use similar skills to make their planning effective and efficient. For example, both Hussein's shop and Cadbury would use communication skills to plan for the business because they need to show that they can present information clearly to other members in the business so that the planning can be effectively achieved. This also shows that both managers would need to use political skills so that they can interact with their employees, which will again make it easier for the subordinates to clearly understand what is needed to achieve the planning.
