Ever wondered why do we need management control? Why do managers exist when leaders drive the army towards the goals? And I am sure a thought flows in right now as to why we want a cabin occupying, laptop carrying, blackberry possessing boss who seldom interacts with the ground force and only makes us jealous with his Armani suit and the luxury car. Well, the answer is pure and simple. Each to his own; leadership and management both are important ingredient and key factors which pushes an organization towards its set objectives and determine its overall success. The leader no doubt plays an important part while ensuring the management directives are carried out and organizational goals are achieved. The management is a vital part of the scheme of things as well, here’s why:
(a few reasons and styles compared)
Style v/s Skills
A leader is always influenced by style, attitude and approach, a Manager on the actual skills.
Alignment v/s Organization
The focus of a leader is alignment whereas a manager is always focused on the organization.
Vision v/s Control
A leader seldom deviates from the visions/objective, whereas a manager is more inclined towards process control. A leader sees the horizon the manager the bottom-line.
Strategy v/s Tactics
A leader has ‘strategy’ embedded into his DNA, whereas a manager believes in tactics.
A leader challenges the status quo and a manager accepts it.
Therefore, it becomes quite clear that both management and leadership must co-exist and none of them can be done without. So, the next time you see the not-so-interactive cabin occupying boss just remember that he is merely taking a cue from the Duck, who appears calm and unruffled on the surface but paddles like a devil underneath.
