In your opinion, what is the difference between leadership and management?
Management is a title. Leadership is earned by setting a good example for your employees to follow.
Leadership involves personal qualities and abilities such as integrity, determination, commitment, loyalty, respect and so on. Good management has to do with organizational skills such as planning and organizing; also includes leadership skills.
web923.... Leadership is described as how I meant it. Lead by example. Management normally lets the leaders do all of their work. The leaders have to answer to management.
Management is simply the fulfillment of basic duties by one who is in charge of others. Leadership is the art of convincing others to willingly follow you with the calculated use of clever or inspiring words or actions. Managers are usually safe people. Leaders are dangerous since they have a way of reaching into your deepest emotions simply to get you to do something for their benefit. A leader is someone who displays qualities of integrity, courage, loyalty, and commitment whether they truly have these qualities or not.
Thank you Old Empresario. You say leaders reach your deep emotions simply for their benefit. You don't think the leader has the entire group in mind?
No, otherwise he would just do it himself. The basis of 12,000 years of human civilization has been the charismatic leader. We love good leaders. We like to follow them. But they are all purely self-interested.
In my humble opinion management is a structure or framework of capable, organised people entrusted with the job of carrying out leadership visions, ideas and created projects.
Leadership carries with it the responsibility of forging ahead into new areas. In order to do this a leader has to make risky decisions, weighing up whether or not the management structure can implement and sustain the business going forward.
Sometimes this means restructure, reform and realignment of a company or enterprise in order for progress to be made. Leadership means clear vision. A true leader nearly always divides opinion and needs to be able to engender trust and moral authority.
Increasingly in the great bureaucracies that help run governments we see management tiers outweigh their responsibilities and leadership can suffer or become undermined. Vicious circles of neglect, corruption and ill judgement can form and sometimes they lead to illegal and incompetent actions.
In education, often the only part of a leader you see is his or her back while a manager is right there beside you.
I do not "lead" my class though I do lead by example. I "manage" my class so we can learn together.
The explanation that I head is that:
A Leader is a visionary who looks to the future, into the distance and says 'We need to get there, that's where we're heading'.
A manager is the person that plans the route, finds out the lay of the land, ensures that everyone knows what they are doing and is performing well.
An employee is the person carrying the bags, doing the cooking and pitching the tents.
