Everyone is a manager. Each individual manages their own lifestyle, their own health, and their own career. And family heads manage their household, their children's lives, and their role in the community.

But we usually think of management in a career sense. And everyone interfaces with management structures -- whether internally, with customers or compliance agencies. Learning how to communicate and build effective relationships in this management matrix is important for a functioning society -- and company -- and life.

7 Management Tips for Influence and Effectiveness

Here are some strategies for dealing with this management matrix. Peter Scholtes, gave us these steps to help those who want to introduce new thinking to leaders/managers:

1. Learn everything you can

2. Identify where you have influence

3. Identify some priorities

4. Recruit allies

5. Have data

6. Communicate artfully - do it in multiple, inventive ways.

7. Don't argue with those who disagree

Those are valuable bones for your green and sustainable marketing, management, and entrepreneurial strategy, as well.

I love the way Steve Jobs, founder and CEO of Apple, explained that what you LEAVE OUT of a product is more important than what you PUT INTO IT. The same could be said about communications and strategy. It might not be important to carry on Twitter conversations if you have a core group of real world allies. It might be better to avoid niche markets in which you have no influence. It might be better to conserve energy and resources based on data about what works best ... and worst.

One of the anomalies of the human psyche is summed up in this quote by Dave Jacke, Dynamics Ecological Design, "Logic and deep systems understanding do not cut it with many people, but boogie men and monsters strike fear into the heart so people remember them and comply."
