Compare and Contrast Leadership and Management

My goal is to obtain a position with my current company as a senior vice president of operations for the Mortgage Division. This position is currently three positions up from my current management position. I will need to do a lot of planning and proving myself to continue to rise up the corporate ladder as there are many managers all trying for this job.

Career Planning
I am already working on my education by attending school for business management with focus on human resources. I choose human resources as the job I desire requires dealing with many difficult staffing situations as well as some tough decisions. Once I graduate in 2011 I plan to attend graduate school at the University Of Minnesota Carlson School Of Business. I will achieve my MBA which will help me obtain further management positions within the company.
I have been with my company for 7 years. I have been in three different departments all giving me the experience to help me achieve my goal. I have been in areas that deal directly with customers and then the last three years I have been moving up the ladder in management. I work some very long hours and sometimes weekends but I am willing to do this to continue to grow and have a better chance of obtaining the job of my dreams.
