1.1 Research background
An organization’s manager carries out tasks through other members, oversees the organization’s activities, and is responsible for achieving its goals. (Robbins, 2005) Key elements of a manager’s job include leadership, negotiating roles, decision-making, and communication. Managers have formal authority over organizational units that are divided into interpersonal, informal, and decision-making roles.
A manager’s work is highly diverse and interaction with staff is considered central to management (Thomas, 2002).

Similarly, Idrus and Sodangi (2007) argued that although the construction industry in Nigeria produces nearly 70% of the country’s fixed investment, its performance within the economy continues to be very poor. may also result from employees moving away from long-term employment and long-term rewards and focusing on short-term rewards. (Eisner, 2005) The workplace is also fundamentally changing, with organizations becoming more diverse, including many key stakeholders, including consultants. The workforce is also becoming more diverse and managers need to be aware of these people.
