Developing direction, setting standards, inspire and manage change
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things…”
The very essence of leadership is that leaders have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision they articulate clearly and show consistently on every occasion they get. This vision must be inspiring and challenging, ambitious and motivating, all at the same time.
Senior managers have far-reaching responsibilities; they have to have a crystal ball in which to see the future, they have to manage dealing with the present and they need to take responsibility for the past. Complicated tasks by themselves, let alone all of them together!
