Colour your managerial type, colour your organization

Colour your managerial type, colour your organization The paper presents Spectral Management Theory as well as its applications to managerial and learning styles to a wide audience ‐ management trainers, human resource managers and general managers who have an interest in managerial development and organisational learning. The spectral approach leads to eight different kinds of management types or styles. The eight dimensions stem from the spectral theory of personality. It is based on three characteristics of a manager ‐ cognitive, affective, and behavioural. Recent managerial approaches lack a developmental element. The spectral approach answers this need. Apart from being a multidimensional analytical tool based on the reality of working life, it leads to individual and organisational development and learning. The Spectral Management Type Inventory (SMTI) is an analytical instrument designed to enable people to identify their personal management style.

Abstract

The paper presents Spectral Management Theory as well as its applications to managerial and learning styles to a wide audience ‐ management trainers, human resource managers and general managers who have an interest in managerial development and organisational learning. The spectral approach leads to eight different kinds of management types or styles. The eight dimensions stem from the spectral theory of personality. It is based on three characteristics of a manager ‐ cognitive, affective, and behavioural. Recent managerial approaches lack a developmental element. The spectral approach answers this need. Apart from being a multidimensional analytical tool based on the reality of working life, it leads to individual and organisational development and learning. The Spectral Management Type Inventory (SMTI) is an analytical instrument designed to enable people to identify their personal management style. Moreover, it serves to stimulate learning processes that enable management to evolve through developmental stages.
