Essay from the year 2005 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0 (B), University of Salford (School of Management), course: Organisational Behaviour, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The business sector in today’s society is increasing rapidly. On the one hand this increase produces the need for more people to manage and lead the growing companies. On the other hand this growing need also raises some potential questions: Could anyone become a leader or a manager? Is there a difference between both? Can people be trained to become leaders or managers? Just like many other questions that might be asked in business; these questions have no exclusive, definite answer. Due it is important to produce an assignment with the following issues: Part 2.1: Support of the thesis: Leaders and managers are different Primarily this part points out Zaleznik’s notion about the differences between leaders and managers.
