What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management?

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management? | Teacher Leadership Weekly | Scoop.it

Management and leadership practises were once just a subject for TV sitcoms – the Office's David Brent, a master of 'management speak', was celebrated as an example of all that is bad about bosses.


But recent scandals, such as those concerning the BBC, NHS and the banking sector, have forced the debate about management and leadership up the agenda. Employers and politicians alike are now asking how our public and private bodies should be organised – and how we can prepare the next generation of leaders.


Key to the problem is understanding the difference between management and leadership, says John Kotter, Konosuke Matsushita professor of leadership at Harvard University. He fears that too often, employers use the terms synonymously.

While management and leadership are distinct concepts, there is a natural overlap between the skills they require. Rebecca Ratcliffe explores

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, July 30, 2013 8:41 AM

The turth is, we need both leaders and managers. One cannot exist without the other. Too often wwe look for ways to segregate ourselves along artificial lines. The key is to build bridges that unite and define, not barriers that divide and deminish.

Why Does an Educational Change Leader Need to Develop a Learning Organization?

One of the best ideas from this article is the notion that leaders "build resiliency during change".  It's something that doesn't get much attention.  Maybe it should give the demands of implementing so many shifts in our approach to the classroom.

I am most interested in anything regarding 21st century skills, as well as the attitude, leadership and systems thinking that goes along with creating a system that reinforces critical thinking and new study skills.

MIT On The Two Most Underrated Leadership Skills

MIT On The Two Most Underrated Leadership Skills | Teacher Leadership Weekly | Scoop.it
VideoLeadership is changing. A big part is the impact of the Millennials. They are less apt to respond to command & control and respond much more positively to a different kind of leadership. Even a recession has not cured them of this.

ratzelster's insight:

If you are wondering how to balance visioning and "relating" to your team, this article is for you.  It's a changing world and a good idea to allow yourself a little tune-up on both.

The Skill of Encouragement – The Capacity of Hope

The Skill of Encouragement – The Capacity of Hope | Teacher Leadership Weekly | Scoop.it

To facilitate simply means to make easy. The leader/teacher makes the process of dialogue look easy, but please recognize how difficult it is to facilitate such a connection in a collective. Take a moment to read and reflection on how much hope we can inject into our schools and the people with whom we work.
