Clive Extence

It’s All Management 101

We are all students. Or, we better be. We should be constantly learning. That is how I approached managing others, improving productivity, reducing scrap, and of course, facilitating classes for working adults. When I began teaching the adult learner, I understood and utilized the KISS principle (Keep it Simple Stupid). Now, that’s not politically correct anymore but you get it.

Reading this chapter, you will note these principles are distilled from 30 years of management and teaching experience. They are simple, readily understood, and hopefully self-evident. The trick is to use them. Getting things done through others is “All Management 101.”  I ask, beg, and plead for you to get off your anatomy and use them.

Clive has worked in service and manufacturing environments for over 30 years. His vocation was industrial management as an Operations manager and Plant manager. His love, joy, and avocation was facilitating adult learning for two universities and multiple colleges. His passion was in bringing real-life experience to the classroom.

He has been retired since 2002, living on a lovely Wisconsin lake, and enjoying his 11 grandchildren... and wife.

Maggie Mongan was a former student in a number of Clive's classes and she was kind enough to invite him to come back to work (on this book). Clive has a passion for passing along his unique management and education experience to team members who have an interest in improving their business and management skills.

CLIVE'S SPECIAL INVITATION FOR YOU:  Subordinate your ego for the greater good - to the team, department, business, or goal.
