It involves planning, monitoring and control rather than meditation. Also Abiri (unpublished) defines personal management “as the one that involves the planning, control and coordination of human resources. Staff could be referred to as the employees working in an organization. They are the personal that carry out the day-to-day routine job to see that the organization achieves its goal and objectives.

According to Mullins (1999) defines it as a strategy for the requisition, utilization, improvement and retention of enterprise human resource. In due respect of the above relevant definition of concept of staff discipline no organization or enterprise can survive if its employees or staff is grossly indiscipline. Indiscipline acts such as lateness to work or absenteeism, shoddy discharge of responsibility e.t.c. If all these are common in an organization, the achievement of its goals and objectives becomes a difficult task to attain.
