Lunch & Learn
“What’s the difference between managing and leading," is a question that has been asked many times and answered in many different ways. The biggest difference between managing and leading is the way the manager or leader motivates the people who work or follow them. This also sets the tone, direction, and approach for most of the other aspects of what they do.
Knowing the difference is critical when it comes to building the culture of your organization, setting goals, having clear focus, staying on track, job performance, overall efficiency, and setting yourself a part from the competition.
