Why Study Leadership and Management?

Leadership and management are often used as interchangeable terms, despite the two concepts being difference in many ways. Neither has a formally agreed definition, but management could nonetheless be described as the pursuit of organisational goals through a combination of deployment, delegation and supervision.  By contrast, leadership is more about motivating and inspiring every member of the workforce to achieve their full potential by setting the best possible example.  Both management and leadership skills play important roles at the heart of successful organisations worldwide.  Hence, those who master the art of effective management and inspiring leadership are often the most sought after assets a business has access to.
