Elements of Directing

The process of directing involves guiding, coaching, instructing, motivating, leading the people in an organization to achieve organizational objectives. Consider the following examples:

(i) A supervisor explains a worker about operations to be carried by him on a lathe machine,

(ii) A mining engineer explains about safety precautions to be followed while working in a coal mine,

(iii) A Managing Director declares share in the profits to the managers for their contribution to enhance profits of the company, and

(iv) A manager inspires his/her employees by playing a lead role in performing a work.

All these examples and many other activities related to directing may broadly be grouped into four categories which are the elements of directing. These are:

(i) Supervision

(ii) Motivation

(iii) Leadership

(iv) Communication
