Inspiring greatness is all about leading by example. Empower employees and colleagues by instilling confidence and allowing them to be the best that they can be.
The role of the leader and the role of the manager are fundamental to both the day-to-day smooth running and the long term success of all organisations. The pace of change in technology, communications, customers and other areas has made these roles often seem more challenging and complex in today’s 21st century global marketplace. It is evident that successful organisations get more from motivated teams than groups of individuals.
What is it that sets a leader apart from a manager? Leaders should have the ability to influence and motivate others. They create visions and go on to inspire and engage people to turn that vision into reality. Managers set and measure goals and control risk.
Can you be both a leader and a manger? The answer is yes. Whilst they are very distinctive, both are needed in today’s business environment. There is a need for leaders who can manage, and managers who can lead. Managers can learn to become effective leaders. It takes time to cultivate leadership and it is important to ensure you are thinking about the company’s needs and vision, rather than just concentrating on executing certain tasks.
According to a report by the Harvard Business Review, managers manage work while leaders lead people. The same report cites the need for leaders to surround themselves with people of influence, while managers typically focus on people of power
“Management consists of controlling a group or a set of entities to accomplish a goal. Leadership refers to an individual’s ability to influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute toward organizational success. Influence and inspiration separate leaders from managers, not power and control.” Harvard Business Review
