Abstract

Social maturity becomes currently more and more important, because egoism, pursuit of wealth, shoddy and unscrupulous people are today dominating. Thanks to these qualities of humans, organizations and society as a whole, we can determine the nature of people and their personality. It also works in the professional life, because character qualities of management subjects constitute the top of social maturity. Social maturity is besides manager knowledge and application skills the key pillar of the holistic managerial competence. It is a conscious or unconscious observance of basic human principles of behavior, enabling them to maintain the holistic of personality. A man becomes social mature through qualities that he receives either through genetic heritability or the environment in which he raises and educates. Through questionnaire method, we examined opinions of management subjects on each of the three pillars of the holistic managerial competence. 300 respondents from Slovakia and Czech Republic belonged either to a group of managers, fulltime or part-time students. The aim of this paper is to outline the views of management subjects on the social maturity in the concept of holistic management and to make recommendations for improvement of the operation of the holistic model of managerial competence.
