There are three types of specialities that mangers should adopt to be successful in their organisations. They include conceptual skills, technical skills and human skills.

Conceptual skills are the types of attributes that a manager needs to possess the ability to judge the overall running of the business. Being a manager of an organisation is very stressful and if the organisation is vast then there are so many things that they will be responsible for. Having good conceptual skills will enable a manager to diagnose and analyse all the various situations while constantly considering the bigger picture. As I’m sure you know a company will be made up of a number of departments including marketing, production, and finance and so on. It is important to be able to consider all aspects as a whole and managers with conceptual skills will be able to do that.

Technical skills refer to the ability to understand the details of a specific area of expertise and attack problems with a shrewd approach. Having a specific technique is good within management although you would have to be able to adapt it depending on various situations. Finally, the most important speciality for a manager is to be good with people. Human skills are vital in management as the job role is to oversee a number of workers who you will need to interact well with. Managers have the responsibility of motivating their employees, and directing orders and this would not be possible without good human skills.

All three of these examples seem to be somewhat timeless and are responsibilities that managers have had to adopt and will continue to do so over time. Human skills especially, will always be required because without people there would be no need for a management role.
