JLBC Leading and managing

Leadership is a substantially different role from management. A leader creates a bold vision and inspires others to believe in it, while a manager seeks to put the idea into practice by steering their employees' day-to-day actions and behaviors. You probably aspire to be called a leader rather than a manager, but, despite their differences, the two roles remain intrinsically linked. Sound management requires some leadership skills, and great leaders are—or know what it takes to be—good managers.

When you move into a leadership role, you won’t and can’t abandon managing altogether. To be credible as a leader, you need to acknowledge the past and what is currently happening while focusing on the future.
