Introduction
Comparison of leadership and management
Paragraph 1
- Leadership and management are two of the most controversial concepts in
organizational behavior
- While both terms are often used interchangeably in casual settings, there are distinct
differences between a leader and a manager
Paragraph 2
- Management is the process of controlling people to accomplish a pre-established goal
-The subordinates do not have to trust or like the manager, but instead, follow the
provided guidelines and policies
Paragraph 3
- Given a choice, I would prefer having a leader than a manager for a boss
- The rationale is that while managers just point their subordinates to the direction, the
leader creates value and inspires their followers to share in the vision
Paragraph 4
- An autocratic leadership approach would be an effective management style in an
organizational setup.
- This leadership style requires centralized control of the subordinates, with the manager
giving all directives
Paragraph 5
- A directive leader is task-oriented, exercise control over their followers, and tend to
micro-manage activities.
- Such a leader focuses on time management and tends to pressure their subordinates to
strictly follow the recommended best practices to ensure the precise accomplishment of
assigned duties
