“Do you need to be a good leader to be a good manager?”
This made me think. Leadership and management are two completely different skills, and I have, in my time, seen those I consider highly competent in each. But do you need BOTH in today’s 21st Century workplace, and is it possible to hone skills in both or should they eternally remain as fighting siblings?
What do you think? Those you admire and aspire to in the workplace, do they have one or both of these skills? And if so, what was the moment (if ever) you thought of them in this way? So please do discuss:
“whether the best leaders have strong management skills, and do you consider managers as natural leaders?”
As always, please share widely.
