HOW TO BE A GREAT MANAGER THROUGH STRONG LEADERSHIP
The management skill of meeting goals is related to the leadership skill of sharing a vision. You as a leader must have a vision for a better future and motivate a group of people toward that vision while following the plans, procedures, and tasks you as a manager created.
As a leader you need to be proactive and creative. As a manager you need to be directive, action-oriented and responsive. You as a leader must get your organization to believe that the work and goals are worthwhile. As a manager, you need to make sure each individual has the skills necessary to achieve those goals. Quite simply, it takes a strong leader to get the group to see the big picture, and a great manager to get the individual to be a part of the big picture. They are different roles, but combined they create an incredible overall management style. (www.masterclassmanagement.com)
