EP 53. Management vs Leadership - What's the Difference?

In this week’s episode, I talk about the key differences between management and leadership. I also cover the challenges faced by individuals transitioning from management to leadership roles, provide practical advice for managers looking to develop leadership skills, and discuss the competencies needed to excel as both effective leaders and efficient managers.  

If you are preparing for leadership, this episode is a great introduction. I also offer a V.I.P Leaders programme that addresses the gaps between management and leadership. If you wish to dive in further, you can see more information on the programme HERE, and become the leader that people actually want to follow. 

In this episode you will learn:

  • What the key difference are between management and leadership
  • The identity shift from manager to leader and challenges you might face
  • How you can develop a leadership mindset
  • Strategies for becoming a visionary and how to enhance emotional intelligence
  • The skills required for effective management and leadership
  • What it means to ‘direct’ and what it means to ‘influence’

Leadership is a practice, a skill set you work on developing every day. Leaders are created, they aren’t born, so you can become an exceptional one if you choose to.

Let me know what your biggest takeaway was from this episode and if you want to develop your skillset even more, check out my V.I.P Leaders programme that will give you exactly what you need to become a leader people actually want to follow.
