For a leader – or anyone else who wants to succeed at hiring and retaining the very best talent – listening is a crucial skill. Because when you tune the wrong people and information out, you’re depriving yourself of priceless tools that will enable you to take your career, and life, to new levels of workplace fulfillment, reward and fun.
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.

No matter how flat your organization is there will always be a vertical component. Front-line employees don’t have the same functional responsibilities as managers, who in turn don’t have the same functional responsibilities as executives. This is true in every organization, and it gives healthy boundaries as well as manages expectations.
These three groups – Executives, Managers, Individuals – have very different functional responsibilities and engagement fits very nicely into them. Just like you wouldn’t expect an individual to develop a 5-year strategy plan for the organization instead of an executive, there are aspects to engagement that should be assigned to the proper functional group.
If each of these groups assumes 3 areas of responsibility each to facilitate engagement, an organization will thrive.
