The following paper will try to explore the concept of a successful manager, as well as to evaluate whether there is one essential ingredient that managers are compelled to possess if they are to achieve performance; although emphasis will be placed on social and human skills, there will also be evidence in support of the ideas that effective managers need all three skills – conceptual, human and technical - and that each of these skills could prove, at some point or another, to be essential for survival, but also useless unless supported by the others two.
