“Leadership AND Management” by Linda Hatcher
Leaders and Managers: often considered like “Lions” and “Tigers.” Both extremely powerful beings, but also very different.
In the October 2010 edition of the FREE Leadership Guide Magazine , we present two articles that remind us of how different, but important the roles of leadership and management are to today’s changed organizations….organizations so changed, in fact, one of the experts cited says we are in a time of the “boundaryless organization.”
In “No More Either-Or’s: Leaders and Managers Must be Both,” we take the broad view of how to lead AND manage organizations through complex dynamics that continue to emerge daily.
“If you have ever witnessed or (unwillingly) participated in an organization where there was leadership without proper management, or one where there was management without proper leadership, you know just how dysfunctional is either extreme combination.” The article goes on to suggests practical specifics of how to develop the core management competencies demanded of all successful organizations today.

In “Emerging Management Issues of the “Boundaryless” Organization,” we focus on the specific dynamics that have emerged in the new organizational structures. “A new world order is replacing generations-old patterns of power and privilege … leaders have been replaced and new patterns for disrupting wealth and influence have been created …twenty-first Century business is in the midst of a social and economic revolution, shifting from rigid to permeable structures and processes and creating something new: a boundaryless organization.” (CLICK HERE)
