management and leadership

Think of the managers you have reported to thus far in your career. Now consider the people you have

worked with or know of that you would consider leaders. Based on these experiences, what would you

surmise about the responsibilities of managers and leaders and about the distinctions between these

two categories in health care settings?

This week’s Learning Resources classify management and leadership (which are often confused in

everyday discussion) and explain their significance for health care organizations. As you advance

professionally, it is critical to understand the distinctions between management and leadership and

how you can apply this knowledge for increasing effectiveness in your workplace.

To prepare:

•Review the information in the Learning Resources.
•Conduct additional research on your own and select at least two current, credible sources that

contribute to your understanding of management and leadership.
•Reflect on how the roles of management and leadership differ in supporting the organization to set

and achieve goals.
•Drawing upon specific examples from a current or previous practice setting, bring to mind someone

who seemed to be a leader but not a manager and someone who seemed to be a manager but not a

leader (generally speaking, or within a specific circumstance). Be prepared to support your assessment

with specific behavioral descriptions found in the literature.
Post on or before Day 3 an analysis of how management and leadership roles differ in terms of

supporting an organization to set and achieve goals. In addition, post descriptions of an individual who

demonstrates leadership behaviors but not management behaviors and an individual who demonstrates

management behaviors but not leadership behaviors. Provide your rationale, identifying specific

characteristics of effective managers and leaders. (Note: Do not identify these individuals by name,

position, or location.)
