Leadership and Management: a Difference and Synergy

To maximize your long-term success you should strive to be both a manager and a leader and to synergize their functions. Merely possessing management skills is no longer sufficient for success as an executive in today's business world. You need to understand the differences between managing and leading and know how to integrate the two roles to achieve organizational success.

As a manager, you must make sure that a job gets done, and as a leader, you must care about and focus on the people who do the job. To integrate and synergise management and leadership, therefore, demands a delicate balance between a calculated and logical focus on (1) visioning, energizing employees, and a genuine concern for them as people (leadership), and (2) organizational processes (management).  >>>
