2 DO NOW:  Take a sheet of paper from the stack at the front of the room  Read the article (both front and back)  After reading, please discuss with a partner the following:  Are you a…  1. Leader  2. Manager  3. Both  4. Neither  Provide examples!

3 So what’s the difference? ManagerLeader Can you be both? Can you not be either?

4 Leadership vs. Management  In business, leadership means providing direction and vision for a company.  Being a manager is NOT the same thing as being a leader.  Managing is a job….  Managers focus on specific tasks and make sure the work gets done.  Managers give orders and carry out orders.  Leading is a skill….  Leaders have a vision  Leaders see the big picture and never loose sight of the goal.  Inspire rather than order

5 Leadership Qualities  Motivation  Having initiative, or the desire to take action and get things done.  They do this by inspiring others with energy, enthusiasm, and charm.  Main quality of entrepreneur  Having a goal, motivated by a vision and inspires others with it.  Confidence  A leader needs to be self-confident.  Its more than acting sure of yourself, its actually knowing what you are doing.  The more confident you are, the more confident your employees are going to be in you.

6 Leadership Qualities Continued  Communication  A leader must be good at human relations, or the ability to communicate with people.  You need to be able to explain what your goals are to your employees.  A leader must also be a good listener.  You need to be able to listen to people to be informed about what they are doing, their strengths and weaknesses, and what they need to do a better job.

7 Leadership Qualities Continued  Integrity  This is the most highly valued quality in a leader.  Holding to principles like honesty, loyalty, and fairness.  In order to lead you need to set a good example.  Be on time, your employees are watching  Take responsibility for your actions, don’t “pass the buck.”

8 Reflection  In your notebooks, construct a paragraph highlighting which of the four main leadership qualities you most possess  Give examples of how and when you portray that leadership quality

9 Styles of Leadership  Three basic styles of leaderships  Autocratic leadership  Democratic leadership  Free-rein leadership  Autocratic Leadership  Self-ruling  This is when you like to run everything yourself and answer to no one.  Make all the decisions without consulting anyone.  When you give orders you expect them to be obeyed without question.  Usually control workers through fear and intimidation.

10 Styles of Leadership Continued  Autocratic leadership continued  Employees do not like to work for you and you assume employees don’t like to work  There is a lack of trust and they feel uninspired  Rarely give credit to employees  Little room for initiative  Democratic Leadership  Managers and employees work together to make decisions.  New ideas are encouraged in this workplace  As a democratic leader you make the final decision but, you explain your reasoning to everyone.  A democratic leader assumes their employees want to work and gives them major responsibilities.

11 Styles of Leadership Continued  Democratic Leadership Continued  By giving employees responsibility, workers will be more creative, productive and take initiative  By showing confidence in employees, they will have confidence in you  Free-Rein Leadership  A Leader that sets goals for managers and employees and then leaves them alone to get the job done.  This shows trust and confidence in their employees.  Also known as “hands-off leadership”  Make big decisions and keep managers informed, while also being available for questions  Giving the managers and employees the power to run things and make decisions is called delegating.  Delegate for the right reasons!

12 Leadership Teams  Self-Managed Teams  Work groups that supervise themselves.  The role of the manager is being replaced by the role of the team leader.  The team leader is a team player rather than the boss.  They are organized in two ways:  1. Each member has a special skill  2. The team selects one team leader  The major idea behind self managed teams is that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  Originated in Japan

13 Advantages of Self-Managed Teams  More goal-oriented than task-oriented  Faster and more efficient  Simplify the decision making process  Learn to participate and cooperate with others  Creativity  Learn to solve their own problems (self-reliant)

14 4 CORNERS: WHICH STYLE OF LEADERSHIP WOULD YOU PREFER, AS AN EMPLOYEE?  1.Autocratic  2.Democratic  3.Free –Rein  4.Self-Managed Team

15 Create a Scenario:  In groups, create a management scenario on your groups’ index card and give that card to another group  You group must then quietly identify which type of leadership is being utilized and construct a skit to act out the scenario you have been given  Groups in the audience must identify the leadership style and suggest ways to improve leadership role
