Balancing Leadership and Management

Combine character-based leadership with management skills development and you have a foundation for building leaders that your employees will choose to follow. Character-based or Essence Leadership refers to what is at the core—those qualities of a leader that are driven from the purpose, values, beliefs and vision. Management skills, or Form, refer to the skills and actions that demonstrate leadership competencies and often are driven by organisational rules and policies. While both Essence and Form are important, they need to be in balance. Often, if there is no integration between Essence and Form, a credibility gap appears and trust becomes an issue. Integrity is the integration between what one is and what one does—leadership and management.
