Directing
 
 
Once plans are made and the organisation is created, the focus shifts to the achievement of objectives. This function is called by various names: directing, leading, motivating, actuating and so on. It basically involves directing or leading the activities of the people. The manager directs the activities of his subordinates by explaining what they have to do and by helping them perform it to the best of their ability. In leading the people, the manager performs the following three distinct tasks:
 
Communication : the process of information flow from one person to another and across the organization;

Leadership : the process by which a manager guides and Influences the work of his subordinates; and

Motivation : the act of stimulating the people so that they give their best to the organisation.
 
Leading is a function predominantly interpersonal in nature. In the organizational context many problems arise because of the failure of managers to understand the people, their aspirations, attitudes, and behaviour as individuals and in groups. If the manager fails in leading the people towards better performance, any amount of planning and organizing, however  effective they are, may not help the organisation.
