Write a 1–2 page analysis that addresses the differences between management and leadership and compares the roles of the manager and the leader in relation to the concepts of leading. Integrate some of your own experience into your analysis.
Management and leadership are not the same thing, but they are necessarily linked and complementary. Any effort to separate the two is likely to cause more problems than it solves. However, much thought has gone into delineating the differences. Your style of leadership is influenced by your understanding of the distinction between the two and that understanding is linked to an ability to lead your teams so that organizational and departmental goals can be met.
