Manager‘s tasks and competences
An outstanding event manager should stand out by means of being highly qualified and having organization skills,. They should also be able to effectively communicate effectively with people and build long-lasting relationships with them. He or she cannot be afraid of problems and have to take responsibility for their decisions. Therefore, they need to accurately assess the risks and be able to quickly respond to them. It is important that he or she takes care of common interests and cares for team building. The manager must not give up easily, but has to consistently strive to achieve their goals. He or she should have a vision of the company’s development and the concept to adapt the company to the changes . Thus, as emphasized by Peter Drucker, an American classic dealing with theory of organisation and management: “Manager is expected to create a true entity, greater than the sum of its parts, is to create a productive entity that is composed of more than the sum of resources inserted” .
In the 80s of the twentieth century Henry Mintzberg pointed out 10 basic roles of a manager , which can be divided into three categories:
• interpersonal roles - representative (manager represents the company in both internal and external relations), the leader setting goals and supervising the work of the team, the liaison between the people and external entities.
• informational roles - specialist (monitor) and gathering and analysing data, expeditor dividing information within the organisation a spokesman speaking officially on behalf of the company,
• decision-making roles - stimulator for development, who initiates the changes, the arbiter containing conflicts and solving problems, resource allocator, and negotiator.
To be able to effectively fulfil all these roles, a manager should develop their competencies related to each of the above-mentioned areas.
