Management vs LeadershipThe differences and shared grounds of management vs leadership!
The conventional boundaries between management and leadership are very defined; management ensures smooth operational running of business, handle daily complex tasks and assignments, make decisions, facilitate discussions to solve problems, negotiate, organize and coordinate departments and people by areas of responsibility, maintain high quality standards and productivity, improve performance, establish policies and procedures as well as reporting and monitoring systems.
Leadership inspires and motivates employees to embrace fresh ideas and project-models and develops visions and long-term strategies.
Management vs Leadership
Nowadays, the concept of management vs leadership is growing and changing.
Organizations are developing flatter structures and concentrating decision making downward to teams and employees. The times of a totalitarian-boss that just orders people around are gone. Employees give authentic dedication if they are encouraged to think innovatively and are mobilized to contribute, participate, make decisions, seek solutions and become partners rather than followers.
Organizations are expecting more than keen managers or great leaders. They are looking for executives who can concurrently lead and manage. Executives are people who lead, build visions and strategies, mastermind operations and allocate resources effectively. They cascade and share strategies and plans with all structures and teams, distributing power and bringing out leadership at much deeper levels.
