Question description

500 WORDS OR 5-7 PARAGRAPHS (REFERENCES HAVE TO BE APA FORMAT)

THEME ONE: What is the manager’s perspective of leadership? How does it differ from the leader’s perspective?  Managers focus on process, procedure, and implementation of the organization’s purpose. Their perspective is on getting the job done and keeping stability. The leader is about change and moving the people toward the vision. The area of overlap comes in terms of the need to use “soft or people skills” to get their job done yet even there a difference in perspective is seen. The manager motivates while the leader empowers.

Peter Drucker

Rusell Honore

When a management with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.
