Management and Leadership 2 Introduction Effective management functions and leadership styles are two very important skills that are extremely important to maintain a healthy, successful organization. Organizations hire responsible leaders and dependable managers to run their company in a safe, professional way. Managers and leaders have different roles, responsibilities, and characteristics. Managers can be trained to become effective future leaders for their companies. Understanding the difference between management and leadership can sometimes be confusing to people. This paper will explain the difference between management and leadership, and clarify why these two skills are highly recommended and needed to maintain any organization. Management Bateman and Snell (2009) stated, management is "the process of working with people and resources to accomplish organizational goals.” Management is considered a function that should be implemented in every business. Manager's positions usually consist of solving problems, and facilitating meetings as well as the bureaucratic tasks. It is also a mental and physical effort to coordinate different activities to achieve desired results. Management deals with the constant routine complications of organizations. Management team members share responsibilities for meeting performance targets. They are responsible for the planning, budgeting, evaluating, and facilitating functions of an organization. Managers have a position of authority vested in them by the company. Managers direct their subordinates on what to do on the job. They are paid to make sure the job is done. Most managers use the delegating system with their employees to get help with the task needed.
