What is the difference between leadership and management?

The difference between a leader and a manager is essentially this:

  1. Leaders set and communicate goals and they inspire others to achieve them.
  2. Managers organise the achievement of the goals by the most efficient use of the team's skills, money and technology.
Leaders are people who work at the head of a team

The definition of a leader

Leaders are people who work at the head of a team:- the leaders are primarily responsible for the creation and the communication of a clear purpose (the vision), and they have the ability to inspire people to willingly work to achieve it.

Find out how we can make you a better leader and manager

Whether you are a chief executive, a team leader or a project manager, day to day, you are problem solving.

The problem you need to solve is: How to get the best performance from every member of your team.

The team performance never exceeds the Leadership performance.
Therefore, the fastest way to improve team performance is to improve the leadership style.

This is where we can help you

There are many leadership courses and development training programmes on the market, but not all of them will provide you with a good learning experience.

Most management training courses use old material (such as Maslow's hierarchy of needs) or out-of-date techniques (such as N.L.P from the 1980s).

In contrast, our leadership training courses are unique, because they contain new, state-of-the-art personal development and leadership system, that will allow you to lead and manage your people more effectively than you ever thought possible.

Although everyone is unique, we share one thing in common: we are all human

With our courses you'll learn how to get the best performance from every member of your team.

As you know, managing people is not easy, because everyone possesses a unique identity. We each have our personal motivations and interests. But although everyone is unique, we all share one thing in common; we are all human.

The Universal Success Principles - U.S.Ps

Because we are all human, we have a lot in common. These commonalities are called, Universal principles. There is a set of universal principles that apply to everyone, everywhere, all the time, simply because we are human, and we have a lot in common with each other.

In all fields of human endeavour (including leadership and management) there is a set of Universal Success Principles - U.S.Ps.

The purpose of Universal Principles is to describe and prescribe successful human action.

There are success principles which, if followed, will produce: good health, effective communication, good economics, harmonious human relationships, efficient time management, excellent leadership-management and motivation.

Our leadership and management training sets out and explains the Universal Success Principles that produce excellence in leadership and management

Your knowledge and application of these Success Principles will determine the level of success you can achieve.

If you don't know these principles, or if you violate them, then your actions will be counterproductive, and you will be doomed to failure.
On the other hand, if you learn and apply the success principles, then your actions are consistent with human nature and, by the law of cause and effect, you must succeed.

On this course you will learn the universal success principles of leadership and management.
Leaders and managers share the same universal goal, which is to harness the full productive capacity of the team and use it to achieve the organisation's mission.

Follow the U.S.Ps and by the law of cause and effect, you must succeed.

This is why you should attend this unique two-day leadership development programme.

You will cover the following topics:
