ROLE OF DIRECTORS WITHIN AN ORGANIZATION – USAMA NADEEM (LEADERSHIP)
There are different roles and positions within an organization according to different hierarchical levels. We have the CEOs on the top and then we have different directors for specific departments which are actually the leaders of that particular department for e. g marketing directors, HR directors etc. The role of directors is very important within an organization because they are involved in all major and core activities which act as a source of guidance and set the tone for the other people within the organization for example the development of the vision and the mission statements etc. One of the most important roles that a director has is to take the best out of the people within his department, motivate them and also make sure that they work to achieve the major goal of the organization which is the fulfillment of the mission and the vision. The directors are responsible for all the activities under their department and they need to make sure that they are in accordance with the company goals, mission and vision.
So, if we get the chance to work as a director of some specific department in some organization we should keep these points in mind and try to avoid departmentalization, encourage effective communication among departments and work in alignment with the organization goals.
