Train Your Leadership - Realize Your Full Potential
Updated: Dec 13, 2022
I have been fascinated over the years by the debate, research, and discussion about leadership and management. Increasingly, there is a focus on the differences between leadership and management. This has developed in part because of deficits in one or the other.
Most of us would like to become, or to think of ourselves as, strong leaders. Something is appealing about creating and pursuing a vision and influencing others to support the necessary transitions. But, true enough, everything would stay the same if it were for good leadership.
Leadership training helps you unlock your full potential and realize your ambitions in the business world. Leadership is firmly at the core of every successful organization, and the effective management of people is a hugely valuable skill that's always in demand.
Open learning allows you to gain leadership training without disrupting traditional study. With available education, you can study in your own time and at your own pace, moving through the training course at whatever rate suits you best. This means that you can easily fit your system around your current life commitments, whether you have family responsibilities, a full-time job, or any other constraints on your time. You can earn a prestigious business degree through open learning and open up a whole new range of career opportunities for yourself!
However, not as many people are as drawn toward being a good manager. Maybe I am misreading the "climate," but management is often associated with the mundane, the routine, and a whole range of "left-brain" activities for which the kudos are few.
There appears to be a perception that one can be a leader or a manager, but only a little acknowledgment that those skill sets can reside in the same individual. This is an erroneous view.
Leadership and management require different skill sets but must co-exist for any change to occur effectively. It is like a hand and a glove. Put together, and they make a great partnership.
