Is There a Difference Between a Great Manager and a Great Leader?
Developed from Marcus Buckingham’s NY Times Best Selling book, “The One Thing You Need to Know – About Great Managing, Great Leading and Sustained Individual Success,” excellence in leadership, in management, and in individual contribution can be distilled into one controlling insight, one”thing” you need to know. This controlling insight is the key to sustained success in any field.
This program will be beneficial to you if you’ve always suspected that great leadership isn’t just a higher form of great management, and you want to put your finger on the profound difference between the two. The role of a great leader is to rally people to a better future (using the future as the place to start). Great managers discover what is unique about a person and capitalize on it – great leaders do the inverse. A truly effective leader will not deny that we are all different – but rather focus on the greater truth that while we are different – we share a great deal and at the same time strategically focusing on the path that take our differences to success.
