  • 1. Supervision Chapter 2: Leadership
  • 2. • A manager is a person who supervises others in an effort to complete tasks or accomplish goals. • A leader is a person who has commanding authority or influence over others and inspires them toward goals. • Studies show that the primary traits that all effective leaders have in common are (1) a positive outlook and (2) forward thinking.   Leadership
  • 3. • Being a good manager is quite an accomplishment. • Managers use values, policies, procedures, schedules, milestones, incentives, discipline, and other mechanisms to push their employees to achieve the goals of the organization. • Leaders, on the other hand, challenge their employees to achieve the organization’s goals by creating a compelling vision of the future and then Managers vs. Leaders
  • 4. • Leaders know that most workers want to feel pride for their organization and, when given the chance, would give their all to a cause they believe in. Leaders
  • 5. • Leaders know the value of employees and their critical importance in achieving the company’s goals. • Few managers reward their employees for being creative or for going beyond the boundaries set by their job descriptions. Leaders
  • 6. Communication • Leaders make a commitment to communicate with their employees and to keep them informed about the organization. • Leadership today is a two-way interchange of ideas where leaders create a vision and workers throughout an organization develop and communicate ideas of how best to reach the vision.
  • 7. Facilitating Achievement • Many managers punish their employees for taking risks and losing, instead of helping their employees win the next time around. • Great leaders support their employees and facilitate their ability to reach their goals.
  • 8. Facilitating Achievement (cont.) • Great leaders create environments in which employees can feel safe to speak up, to tell the truth, and to take risks.
  • 9. Optimistic Outlook • Numerous traits of great leaders have remained the same over the years and are still highly valued today. • Great leaders always see the future as a wonderful place. • People want to feel good about themselves and their futures, and they want to work for winners.
  • 10. Leadership Traits • Great leaders have no doubt—at least not publicly—that they can accomplish any task they set their minds to. • One trait that sets great leaders apart from the rest of the pack is integrity: ethical behavior, values, and a sense of fair play. • When an organization’s leaders conduct themselves with integrity, the organization can make a very real and positive difference in the lives of its employees, its customers, and others who come in contact with it.
  • 11. Making Decisions • The best leaders are decisive. • Despite the fact that making decisions is one of the key reasons that people are hired to be managers, too few are willing to risk the possibility of making a wrong decision. • Great leaders take whatever time is necessary to gather whatever information, people, or resources they need to make an informed decision within a reasonable time frame.
  • 12. Collaborative Leadership • A new kind of leadership is gaining traction in an increasing number of organizations. • Collaborative leadership is a leadership style where everyone works together.
  • 13. Collaborative Leadership • This leadership sharing occurs not just with other managers and supervisors, but with employees at all levels.
  • 14. Orpheus Process • There is a unique brand of collaborative leadership practiced by New York City’s Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. • At the heart of the Orpheus Process are eight principles. • To survive and prosper, today’s organizations need to get the most out of every employee and every employee needs to take a leadership role in his or her organization.
  • 15. • Leaders inspire others to action by communicating a vision for a better tomorrow, communicating that vision, and listening to input from others. A leader’s vision becomes reality when employees are encouraged to take risks and be creative. One way to achieve the best for an organization is through collaborative leadership, a leadership style where everyone works together and shares the leadership role. Summary
