It bears no emphasis or repetition that managers are of crucial importance to organizations. It is they who run the organization and take it to its desired destination. Managers do the core organizational work in the organization, taking decisions and doing all the things that have a profound impact on it.
Yet, there is a difference between the manager who carries out operational work to run the organization and the leader, who visualizes and strategizes the organization’s future and helps it reach there. While the work of the manager is very important; the role of the leader is undisputable. Leaders are the beacon lights of the organization who show the way that it must take.
Managers can imbibe leadership skills
Managers can become leaders, too. With the right orientation and training, it is possible for them to transition from being operational managers who run the daily show to effective leaders who develop a vision for the organization and take it to this destination. Managers need to move out of their operational mind-set to and cultivate the leadership outlook, which empowers them to anticipate, initiate and manage change for ensuring that the organization attains the highest levels of competitiveness. This requires them to redefine and refocus their thinking from time to time. It requires them to share their ideal with the team, motivate it, and take the team members along the growth path.
