Managerial Skills

The ability to make business decisions and lead subordinates within a company. Three most common skills include: 1) human skills - the ability to interact and motivate; 2) technical skills - the knowledge and proficiency in the trade; and 3) conceptual skills - the ability to understand concepts, develop ideas and implement strategies. Competencies include communication ability, response behavior and negotiation tactics.

Simply, managerial skills are the knowledge and ability of the individuals in a managerial position to fulfill some specific managerial activities or tasks. This knowledge and ability can be learned and practiced. However, they also can be acquired through practical implementation of required activities and tasks. Therefore, each skill can be developed through learning and practical experience of the individuals.

Managers will need skills that will help them to manage people and technology to ensure an effective and efficient realization of their working tasks.

Three types of Managerial Skills

  • Technical;
  • Conceptual and
  • Human or interpersonal management skills.

  • Technical:

    As the name of these skills tells us, they give the manager’s knowledge and ability to use different techniques to achieve what they want to achieve. Technical skills are not related only for machines, production tools or other equipment, but also they are skills that will be required to increase sales, design different types of products and services, market the products and services…


    Conceptual skills present knowledge or ability of a manager for more abstract thinking. That means he can easily see the whole through analysis and diagnosis of different states. In such a way they can predict the future of the business or department as a whole.

    Conceptual skills are vital for top managers, less important for mid-level managers, and not required for first-level managers. As we go from a bottom of the managerial hierarchy to the top, the importance of these skills will rise.

    Human & Interpersonal Managerial Skills:

    Human or interpersonal managerial skills present a manager’s knowledge and ability to work with people. One of the most important management tasks is to work with people. Without people, there will not be a need for existence of management and managers.

    These skills will enable managers to become leaders and motivate employees for better accomplishments. Also, they will help them to make more effective use of human potential in the company. Simply, they are the most important skills for managers.
