Leadership's relation with management

  • Warren Bennis (1989) drew twelve distinctions between leaders

    and managers:

  • Managers ask how and when, leaders ask what and why

  • Managers focus on systems, leaders focus on people

  • Managers do things right, leaders do the right things

  • Managers maintain, leaders develop

  • Managers rely on control, leaders inspire trust

  • Managers have a short-term perspective, leaders have a

    longer-term perspective

  • Managers accept the status-quo, leaders challenge it

  • Managers have an eye on the bottom line, leaders have an eye

    on the horizon

  • Managers imitate, leaders originate

  • Managers emulate the classic good soldier, leaders are their

    own person

  • Managers copy, leaders show originality

Knowing these can help you identify jobs in which you are most likely to be successful, and it can also assist in letting you get them; write five things you have accomplished and with which you feel satisfied. Then identify the skills and qualities you used to achieve these things. Take few minutes to add as many of your skills and qualities you can think of.
