What is Management & Leadership?
First things first – Management & Leadership are not the same thing.
- Managers have employees that work for them and direct them to undertake tasks
- Leaders inspire people in support of a vision or plan
Management often occurs at various levels within an organization and covers a broad range of tasks and responsibilities. These responsibilities often vary between industries but tend to cover the same fundamental objectives.
In most organizations, management & leadership go hand in hand, albeit with leadership being the primary focus of the more senior positions.
Managers need to undertake their routine tasks while delivering leadership through inspiration and motivation.
