Why Leadership and Management is Important in an Organization

Why Leadership and Management is Important in an Organization

“Management is about arranging and telling, and Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.” ~ Tom Peters

We all know that management and leadership are distinctly different to each other. Management is described as an act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives using available resources efficiently and effectively (Boundless, 2016, para 1). Whereas, leadership is a process of social influence which maximizes efforts of others towards the achievement of a goal (Kruse, 2013, p. 2). Leaders are those who inspires, motivate, and builds a positive relationship within an organization and it needs both “leadership and management” to achieve success.

Having an imbalance between management and leadership creates a negative environment in an organization. For example, when a colleague shares and discuss his visions and plans and others oppose or even listens to it creates a border or gap in-between. One of the essential part of being a good leader is to be good in listening (Campbell, 1997).  Listening enhance interpersonal relationship to a co-worker, subordinates, employees or employers. It also creates a balance in having both leadership and management in an organization which creates a positive impact and a healthy environment.
