Leadership versus Management



In a recent training I was asked how leadership differs from management.

Well for a start, it’s personal.


There is little difference between who you are as a person and who you are as a professional.


As a leader you bring your whole self to work and are adept at managing all different aspects of yourself. Leadership is not just a mental challenge, it’s also emotional and physical.


 Do you know what kind of a leader you wish to be?


Are you able to identify what’s going on and distinguish which areas you need to develop?


Do you know your limits and move through your activities with productive energy and enthusiasm, even when you’ re being tested?


Who benefits when you take the time to clarify your leadership role?


How can you best lead change, your stakeholders, your team, yourself?
