Princeton defines management as “the act of managing something” and “those in charge of running a business”. What comes to mind when you hear the word “management”?
When I hear “management” used as a group of unnamed people, I think of toilet seat covers. Specifically, I think of toilet seat covers in public restrooms. Sometimes the packaging says: “Provided by the Management For Your Protection”.
Oftentimes I see signs at retail stores that say things like “No Bills Larger than $20” signed by, of course, “The Management”. Also, I hear things like “It was a management decision” or “I will take it up with management”.
As a manager, I take responsibility for my role and for my decisions.
People make decisions. Managers make decisions.
“Management” provides toilet seat covers.
