Executives and board members are expected to have a major, positive influence on the organisations they work for. But, that’s not always the case, and sometimes senior leaders make things worse. For this reason, recruiters of senior level positions are deeply interested in the leadership-management perspectives of candidates. Since the media and popular literature regularly use leading and managing as interchangeable synonyms, many in senior roles aren’t able to distinguish between the two. Being unable to distinguish between leading or managing results in underperformance. This module focuses on practical ways in which senior people might lead and manage for successful outcomes.
