Managers and business leaders have several major responsibilities with regard to the employees they supervise. In general, these responsibilities may be viewed in two parts. First, leaders must direct the day-to-day operations of their departments, ensuring that staff members complete their tasks, measuring productivity, and spearheading program initiatives, among others. Second, managers and leaders must align their subordinates with the company's strategies, pursuing goals and following policies that may foster a change in the business's approach or organization (MIT, 2010).
