What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management?

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management? | New Leadership | 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.

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.

The 50 Most Powerful Questions Leaders Can Ask

The 50 Most Powerful Questions Leaders Can Ask | New Leadership | Scoop.it

According to Mike Myatt, "The best leaders don’t engage in monologues; they stimulate conversations. They understand conversations are not competitions to be won, but opportunities to enrich, inspire, challenge, illuminate and learn. So, what makes for great dialogue? Great questions.

 

His belief is that the most powerful question of all is the one that works within the context of the situation at hand. The question must be appropriate to the person(s) being addressed, the timing must be spot-on, but most importantly it must unlock the door to reveal the needed input/feedback/information."

 

In this article he list 50 of the best questions he's come across.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, June 21, 1:57 AM

The ability to question effectively is often highly underrated but in many ways it is the single most important competency that we possess as leaders, parents and innovators.  The art of asking the right questions at the right time can have a profound effect on people - just ask a good coach or an inventor.

 

Leaders often begin their careers feeling that they need to have all of the answers.  In truth, the sooner they realise that they don't (and shouldn't feel they have to) and instead begin to ask questions and admit they don't know, the more effective they become as people leaders.

 

This article provides a list of useful questions to ask and reading through the list is stimulating - trying to understand why these questions are powerful is particularly interesting.  But most of all leaders need to learn how to ask the right questions so that choosing the right questions is a skill that comes naturally.

How to Make the Most of Strategic Business Partnerships

How to Make the Most of Strategic Business Partnerships | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Massive tasks or projects have the capacity to strain the limits of any company’s knowledge and resources at times. The CEO must decide if it’s worth spending valuable time and money to tackle something that could dramatically affect the team’s productivity. Often, only an outside third party can knock out those projects and get the company from point A to point B. Finding a third party that can work seamlessly with your own business may seem daunting. But leveraging outside partnerships is often more effective, and less expensive, than taking big projects on yourself.

"Are You A First Responder Or A Leader?"  

"Are You A First Responder Or A Leader?"   | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Mark looked up from his computer and took a deep breath. The frenetic pace of the day had given way to the serene quiet of an empty building. He both treasured this time and found himself tortured by it. The stillness and the lack of interruption, allowed him to finally focus without the chaos of the day constantly ripping him away from his work.

But, this time came with a big sacrifice. Sitting in his office at 7:30 pm meant that he had once again failed to make it to his daughter’s soccer practice, and was sure to miss dinner with the family. He shook his head as if to drive the thought away and returned to the spreadsheet that was demanding his attention.

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age?

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Advancement in digital technologies has disrupted everything, including leadership styles.

 

Employees want more ownership rather than to follow instruction; customers want to participate in the marketing and development process; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where all insight and direction comes from the top. In short, the autocratic Commander, whether brilliant or misguided, just won’t cut it anymore.
