Invention of mobile phones and internet has changed the communication and speed of information exchange. Technology has given more and more start ups with the ability to compete head on with larger organisations by disrupting the status quo. The need today is to provide better leadership for people, for organizations and most recently partnerships and communities. This makes difference to performance.
This write up seeks to explain readers about how leadership differs from management. The managerial roles are based on knowledge, techniques, skills and emphasis on results within the parameters of organisation’s principles and policies where as leadership roles focuses on imagination, passion, commitment and fulfillment of dreams. Traditional management approaches based on scientific analysis do not contribute much towards understanding leadership. Understanding leadership is really about understanding life and this starts with gaining and understanding of self and people.
