Is there really a difference between management and leadership? Well, yes, there is!

In most cases, managers use their specific technical skills, knowledge, and expertise to achieve set objectives. The primary role of leaders is to influence and inspire people. Of course, both functions are crucial, and sometimes, a person must act as both a manager and leader. To explain further, here are some key differences between each of the roles:

 Leaders set the vision; managers follow it

 Leaders think ideas; managers think execution

 Leaders inspire people; managers drive their success

 Leaders look in the future; managers work in the present

 Leaders shape the culture; managers encourage and support it

Within this course offered by Pathways Australia you will be presented with a range of practical ideas, tips and techniques; have opportunities to discuss issues and work with your fellow participants and undertake confidential self-assessments that will help you learn more about yourself and how you can become a highly effective leader.
