Abstract: The management process is directed towards achieving certain goals. Its realisation is affected by a multitude of factors, including the habits of managers and their subordinates. Consciously or unconsciously, habits determine the behaviours of individuals in their personal and working lives. When the personal and work habits affect positively the manner of making decisions, the completion of particular tasks, the achievement of goals, etc., this can result in either an effective or ineffective management process. The combination of positive and negative habits places individuals in different situations at their work place, which in turn requires from managers to interfere adequately. They should look for opportunities for managing both their and their subordinates’ habits. This demands from them to be able to use their leadership skills as well as to have thorough knowledge of the habit formation process.
