While leadership and management may at a glance seem very similar, they also do have distinct qualities that propel each into its own world. Leaders are generally known to take charge and implement their winning attitude or approach to those around them, or against them. Leadership in turn translates to a practice of excellence, which is the ultimate goal of a leader to bestow on those they are expected to lead. Management on the other hand carries its own characteristic, in that they use the tools around themselves to establish a systematic approach that leads to optimal functionality.
For example, every business needs management to operate, but at times it will need leadership to succeed. Management during a busy holiday season is expected to implement functions such as planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating, reporting, and budgeting. Managers enforce the systematic elements that establishes the structure management strives towards. However, when the holiday rush hits a small retail business, the very system that management implemented may not be able to sustain the increase of responsibilities and deadlines necessary to operate. A manager trying to control the duties of its employees by coordinating their responsibilities, despite those responsibilities being unrealistic, is a time when the functions of leadership should be provided instead. Instead, the manager should be acting in a leadership role, whereby they modify and make situational changes to any daily task or employee’s responsibilities, despite it being against the grain, and not what management had already been enforcing. This type of take-charge approach goes beyond the norm of a manager, and represents the very essence of a true leader. entences min
