"You have to be a good manager to be an effective leader. Critically examine this statement.

You essay must not exceed 1500 words. Please refer to teh marking criteria to help guide your work."

The statement which we are required to examine can give vague answers as it includes 2 fundamental theories, Management and Leadership. From the Leadership ppt presentation, I can see that the main focus will be on leadership and how it differs from management. In addition to this I can see that we have to discuss the scientific evolution of leadership theories , Max Weber - Charismatic leadership Model (Trait or Great Man Theory) - which argues leader are born not made. We will then have to describe and critique behavioral theories of Leadership - Michigan and Ohio studies, Leadership Grid Finally we will need to discuss transactional and transformational theories of leadership . In a way we will have to evaluate the different approaches to leadership , (Just like we did for Management theory) , But can anyone please advice me if we have to keep relating it to management as we go along because I am worried, I will end up with too much material to talk about. I mean about both management and leadership theories? Leadership is “the creation of a vision about a desired future state which seeks to enmesh all members of an organization in its net.” (Bryman, 1986)

This is distinct from management which is involved more in the “here and now of goal attainment.” (Bryman, 1986
