Topic:  Leaders vs. Managers, Old Controversy - New Perspective

Welcome to 2017….Scholars continue to debate the true origin of leadership qualities and the comparison of leaders to managers.   While you may believe many individuals are born with the ability to lead, others argue that people can learn to lead. The truth, however, may lie somewhere in the middle. Born or bred, leaders must not only successfully manage the day-to-day operations of their departments but they must also determine the long-term goals of the agency and enlist the whole-hearted cooperation of their subordinates to accomplish these goals. Plan now to join this debate with the review of current thoughts on this topic.
