In the growing pace of pressures in the corporate world, Management Gurus have time and again emphasized the new paradigm of strategically managing business management with holistic perspective. Nurturing an employee at an individual level creates a synergy for not only increasing the efficiency of the team, growing profitability, improving the quality of the work environment; but also creates an environment to nurture innovation.


In order to develop the whole person as a human resource, it is not enough to only concentrate on the skills and competencies the organization desires. A commitment to the needs of the individual must be matched with the needs of the organization and the manager. The employee must be developed in terms of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical resources. When managers concentrate on developing all of the resources the employee has to offer, employees are "empowered to take risks, act as entrepreneurs and visionaries, and develop supportive, cooperative relationships with coworkers, customers, and clients".

                                             -  Scott & Hughes, 1995


Just as any system needs a form of control to monitor goal achievement, internal organizational systems utilize performance appraisals to modify or correct behavior that undermine its ability to increase productivity. The role of the manager in assessing goals and performance is critical to this role in developing and improving the individual and organizational productivity. By determining what is needed and what is the desired state, the holistic manager is able to provide feedback on behavioral performance, not personal characteristics. The manager concentrates on the ineffective behaviors that hamper goal achievement and paths of development to improve the behavioral performance to achieve those goals.

- Porter, 1995
