The 2 Types of People Needed for Success

Standard

John Kotter’s classic, Leading Change, makes a powerful distinction between management and leadership. Kotter says that management is focused on the effective maintenance of the status quo, i.e. they keep things going. In contrast, leadership is about a vision for the future; it is about moving things in a new direction.

Every organization needs both types: competent managers and effective leaders. Most human resource programs focus on management programs. Many confuse leadership development with management programs.

How are we building leader-ful organizations?

How are we ensuring that we can sustain organizations and keep them adaptive enough to a rapidly changing world?
