This paper will differentiate between Leadership and Management, give two recommendations to create and maintain a Successful organizations have strong leaders and managers that develop, support and encourage employee longevity within a company.There is a significant difference between leadership and management however both skills have to be used collectively and both are important to a profitable organization.
The fundamental responsibility of a manager is to accomplish the organizations objectives by getting things done through others.
Many leaders have different personalities and styles of leadership.
Buckingham (2005) gives an example of how a customer service representative named Manjit in a Walgreens store in San Jose, California consistently outperformed her peers. Jim turned out to be a great manager by quickly picking out on Manjit’s idiosyncrasies and translated them into outstanding performances.
Manjit was a normal performer until the store’s current owner Mr. Manjit had a love for public recognition and Jim recognized this by highlighting her scores in red put up on the walls & also put up photos documenting her success.
Good leaders excel at inspiring others to get things done. Most managers are hired to do things by the book and to follow procedure.
They tend to accept organizational structure and process, as it exists.
In this paper, I will discuss the difference between managers and leaders.
I will also examine the role and responsibilities of leaders in creating and maintaining a healthy organizational culture and I will also make two recommendations to create and maintain a healthy organizational culture followed with a couple of examples to support my recommendation.
Leadership has been defined as "one who conducts, precedes as a guide to others in action or opinion, one who takes the lead in any enterprise or movement, one who is 'followed' by disciples or adherents" (Mirams-Well, 2006).
Leadership comes in a number of different forms, but all leaders are heading toward the same common goal, which is to effectively communicate with people.
