The assumption that a Manager will also make a Leader has landed many organisations with issues. Moving people into management roles by progression is fraught with dangers. Promoting people because they have been in the job for a period of time or because they are good at the job often leads to performance issues. Carrying out a functional role, being a manager and leading, require very different attributes and skills.
This session will look at the difference between managing and leading. What are the characteristics of a manager, and beyond management, what characteristics does a leader need? Defining the characteristics and competencies of a manager and a leader will enable organisations to develop their people to succeed as managers and leaders rather than set them up for failure. Paul Bridle will show how leadership has evolved and provide a framework that people can use to identify where they should be spending their time.
This session covers:
- How and why Leadership has and will continue to evolve and adapt,
- The importance of both management and leadership and getting the balance right,
- A framework to enable managers to evaluate what the business needs from them, both as a manager and a leader.
Participants will be able to:
- Differentiate management and leadership in their job,
- Use the framework provided to evaluate and improve their performance.
