2.LITERATURE REVIEW 文献综述
‘‘A good leader encourages followers to tell him what he
Needs to know, not what he wants to hear.’’
—John C. Maxwell. (Carroll, 2008)
Leading and directing are continuous processes, but we can divide them down into some key tasks in which managers usually involve. In fact, the activities (or fundamentals) we discuss here depict the diversity of leading and directing and demonstrate how they can vary from situation to situation. They include: (1) telling someone what to do, (2) providing information on how to do it, (3) seeing that he or she has learned how to do it, (4) making the performance of the work as appealing and comfortable as possible, and (5) conferring specific rewards or punishments for performance. (Powers & Barrows, 1999).

2.2 PROBLEMS FACED BY CHEF AS A LEADER TODAY: - Chefs of twenty first century are no more the cooks whose purpose mainly is to plan the menus or deliver great visual appeal to the dishes but he also has to but also to make subordinate follow company mission, take and encourage sanitation and nutrition classes, appreciate world flavors and ingredients and in ‘‘spare time’’ be a role model and motivator for all subordinates and encourage them to innovate. The Chef who is capable to form a team and then lead and motivate that team is the chef of today and the future.
2.3 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISION: - Supervision means instructing, guiding, monitoring and observing the employees while they are performing jobs in the organization. The word supervision is the combination of two words, i.e., supervision where super means over and above and vision means seeing. So, supervision means seeing the activities of employees from over and above. (Yourarticlelibrary.com, 2015)There are several slight differences between supervision and management. The supervisor’s work occurs at the operating level; that is, he as well as she works directly with the employees when they do their own work. Management, however, is involved with your totality of the organization’s complications. Managers operating in long-range arranging may well find some need—for illustration, to redesign the organization structure as well as the management system. Often, especially in large organizations, managers direct the job of managers, who, consequently, direct supervisor’s tasks involving employees. (Powers & Barrows, 1999)
2.4.1WHAT IS COMMUNICATION: -
“Communicate, communicate, communicate- until you are sick of hearing yourself. Then communicate some more.” – Jack Welch Former CEO of General Electric. (Carroll, 2008)
Organizational Communication is an evolutionary, culturally, dependent process of sharing information and creating relationships in environments designed for manageable, goal-oriented behavior (Fisher, 2007)
2.4.2 IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNICATION: -
A good leader always investigates about the problem or failure in the organization and most often concludes that the message was not communicated as required. A good leader always believe in having a futuristic approach in communication. He communicates the future plans before the event so that one can prepare himself for the task in hand. Here is one example of your communication ability that works great for Chef Charles.
