“Management and Leadership and Practical Reflection” Please respond to the following:
Stojkovic, our textbook author, identifies both management and leadership as process. For this discussion, research and report on the differences between management and leadership. How do these differences influence professionals in criminal justice organizations?
Determine what you want to do with your degree, specifically: where you want to work; what you want to do, and what motivated you to choose that job and place to work?
According to McCaffery (2018), Leadership refers to getting people to understand and believe in your vision and accept to work with you in order to accomplish your own goals management, on the other hand, refers to the act or the process of administering and overseeing that the daily activities are happening as they are expected to. When it comes to leadership, a leader does not have to be in a position of authority but he/she is being followed by the people because of their character behavior and personality Northouse (2018). A manager, on the other hand, is in place of authority and is charged with the mandate of planning, controlling, leading and organizing. A leader has influence over people while a manager has power over them.
Management and leadership process is very important in any organization and criminal justice systems Bolden (2016). A good example of the influence of the difference between leadership and management is in the criminal justice when a judge is a leader they are likely to give a ruling of a case based on honesty and the applicable law and people can easily believe in that particular judge. In an organization, leaders are important as they help in influencing people to achieve the desired goals of the organization and they are also able to support the visions of the organizations by helping others believe in the same visions. On the other hand, managers in an organization are important as they make sure that the activities are carried out in the right way and that the desired results have been achieved.
