Is this a Management book or Leadership; well quite frankly both.
1: the act or skill of controlling and making decisions about a business, department, sports team, etc.
2: the people who make decisions about a business, department, sports team, etc.
3: the act or process of deciding how to use something
Merraim-Webster’s goes on to say:
Full Definition of MANAGEMENT
1: the act or art of managing : the conducting or supervising of something (as a business)
2: judicious use of means to accomplish an end
3: the collective body of those who manage or direct an enterprise
Merraim-Webster’s dictionary defines Leadership as:
Full Definition of LEADERSHIP
1: the office or position of a leader
2: capacity to lead
3: the act or an instance of leading
4: leaders <the party leadership>
Examples of LEADERSHIP
a politician who lacks leadership
What this country needs is the exercise of strong leadership!
Steven Covey goes on to say: “If I could have people understand one key paradigm of the Knowledge Worker Age it would be that you manage things, but you lead people. That is how we will empower them. “
Perhaps we could say that the manager will manage the department to ensure that duties are completed correctly and on time and lead the people to achieve their goals. In my case I like to direct people to do those things that stretch them so that they learn and practice while they learn and in addition to doing those things to help the organization. Win win for both.
In this book I will use the manage or management word most often as that seems to be the way it is used most often in the work place, but it does mean lead when it comes to interaction with the individuals.
