MANAGERS OR LEADERS?
During the first week of my LE I am realizing that leadership is one of the most is a rare quality and it requires lifetime commitments. In this forum I would like to reflect on the differences between leaders and managers. Particularly, from my point of view, management is more about controlling and planning. Leadership is about deal with changes, inspire, motivate and influence people. Based on this, managers produce order and love predictability. On the other hand, leadership produces changes and adaptability in order to accomplish the vision of the company, also leaders are likely to transform their organisation in order to adapt it to the rapidly business environment, while managers are more focused on managing their organisation for higher profitability.
However, in order to survive organisations need ideally both features in one person. In fact, organisations who want to excel among their competitor, need to have good leaders that are aimed on developing the human capital of the organisation, that is the most important asset that an organisation has, but at the same time have to have capable manager that are focused on increase company’s margins.
