ABSTRACT
In this article, the practitioner-academician examines the Confucian Rectification of Names and applies it to job titles and human resources management. The paper is analyzed in three parts, that is: i. Should a leader/ manager act or fulfill his or her role and responsibilities? ii. What happens if the title or appointment does not match or fit with the qualities and competencies or skills of the jobholder? and iii. When there is no Rectification of Names, much incompetence can exist and office politics can be rife?
