While both leadership and management both have the same purpose of completing work and achieving goals, leaders are more intuitive and are likely to listen to their subordinates. Leaders have excellent communication skills, adaptability, shared vision, and mentor. They highlight personal strengths and encourage growth among their team.
Managers act in a role of authority, direct their personnel through planning, controlling, directing, and staffing the organization without much involvement or feedback from staff. Managers are entrusted with authority by the organization, and their employees work for them and primarily follow their orders.
Even though management and leadership have distinct differences, these two concepts are intertwined and often overlap. For example, nurse managers are active in a leadership role when they influence a group during the staff meeting to achieve its objectives and encourage feedback to achieve set goals. Leaders are involved in management when they are involved in planning, controlling, organizing, and staffing, the unit.
To facilitate change a nurse leader must be proactive, innovative and be capable of empowering and influence others. Finally, leaders are influencers that can be great influencers for positive change. According to the reading, the long-term success of all health-care organizations depends on the combination of both leadership and management talents (Whitney, 2020). This overlap provides many opportunities for growth, development, diversity, influencing behaviors, and building relationships between staff.
Describe the difference in roles between leadership and management. Explain how the goals of management and leadership overlap and provide one example. As a nurse leader, describe how you can facilitate change by taking advantage of this overlap.
