We introduce aesthetic management as a promising approach in management studies. Two current movements in management research, the inclusion of followers in management models and the exploration of subjective management qualities, make taking an aesthetic perspective in management especially attractive and timely. Aesthetics relates to felt meaning generated from sensory perceptions, and involves subjective, tacit knowledge rooted in feeling and emotion. We believe the aesthetics of management is an important, but little understood, aspect of organizational life. We propose that followers use their aesthetic senses in making these assessments. We relate aesthetic management and management to several current topics in management research, and outline the assumptions and methods of aesthetic management.
In this article we try to discover the role of aesthetic in management and after it try to find out the style of about 130 industrial and governmental top managers in Iran by using some technique such as questionnaire and interview. The personality and character of them will be recognized by some test such as KAI, MBIT, CPS, Cooper-Smith self-esteem, management style, machiavellism, internal and external control, behavior, attitude and their methods in problem solving and decision making, and the effect of this ability in productivity of their organization.

Keywords: Aesthetic, Management, KAI, MBIT, Creative Problem-Solving, Test
