Introduction to Leading and managing and difference between leadership and management
We will start our course with how the human mind works and information that we may not notice. We may not process consciously all of the information that we receive through our senses. Our senses send the brain almost 11,000,000 pieces of information per second. We can only handle between 16 and 50 pieces of information per second. Much of what we think and do is done unconsciously. This means that we all have blind spots-information that we don’t pay attention to.
Management is more about being efficient and working within systems and procedures. Leadership focuses on creating a vision and working on improving systems. For some, leaders are effective because they do the right job, whereas managers are efficient because they do the job right. For Stephen Covey: “Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out”.
