Leadership and Team Development

What is the difference between leadership and managing?

Leaders motivate the team; managers plan tasks

Leadership - EI (emotionally intelligent)

  • People orientated, every action demonstrates an interest in people

  • Leveraging team skills

  • Inspirational and motivational

  • Creates the vision for the team and develops followers

  • Asks lots of questions/coaching style

  • Pull approach

Management - IQ (intelligence quotient)

  • Task orientated

  • Focus on skills, processes and methods

  • Enjoys a plan and ticking the box when task complete

  • Telling style "need to do"

  • Push approach

It is important to have the ability to use both styles however leadership creates a team, an army who want to follow because they are encouraged to own the solutions to problems and can operate at their best. No team or individual has ever asked to be micromanaged!
