For this, we conducted a thorough review by the hundreds of articles published, by most important management skills, from leadership and team management to time management, through emotional intelligence.
Anyway, and from our point of view based on daily experience with computers, managers, professionals and entrepreneurs from diverse sectors, remains to be done.

And what do you usually do in this scenario? Is often used standardized solutions and little connection to the real needs and concerns of the people in the company. For example:

- Performance evaluations carried out once a year, and a burden to the Manager and to the contributor, despachándolo as a mere bureaucratic.
- Coaching Process 6 sessions, without continuity and support in time.
The real changes are achieved in the long run, in a firm and continuing commitment in time and connected actions consistent development strategy, which in turn must be connected to the vision and objectives of the company.

- Short-termism. At all levels of the organization prioritizes the short term, immediate results, operability, and strategy is neglected, vision and long term goals.
- The urgent. Closely related to the first point, perform professional management of the urgent, and never how important. Emergencies devour their agendas as anxious hyenas, generating stress, helplessness and discouragement managers and employees.
Since I work a lot with Banco Santander, follow closely the changes in the group since Ana Patricia Botín took over the company after the death of his father. Among other changes brought, am very interested in the change being made in the mentality and culture of such a gigantic company.

Where applicable, its work of clarity and strategic communication is being admirable and splendid, from my point of view, well as much needed to reverse the overall negative image of the citizen on the banking sector.
