    Leadership isnt Management ICS Varma | India


  • Define leadership

    Leadership is both a research area and a

    practical skill encompassing the ability

    of an individual or organizations to

    "lead" or guide other individuals, teams,

    or entire organizations.

  • Leadership plays an important part in

    the success of any organization. In the

    absence of effective leadership no

    organization can work efficiently.

    Importance of Leadership

  • Leadership has nothing to do with seniority

    or ones position in the hierarchy of a

    company. Too many talk about a companys

    leadership referring to the senior most

    executives in the organization. They are just

    that, senior executives. Leadership doesnt

    automatically happen when you reach a

    certain pay grade.

    What is Leadership any way

  • Leadership and management are not

    synonymous. You have 15 people in your

    down line and P&L responsibility? Good for

    you, hopefully you are a good manager.

    Good management is needed. Managers

    need to plan, measure, monitor, coordinate,

    solve, hire, fire, and so many other things.

    Typically, managers

    manage things. Leaders lead people.

    Leadership isnt Management

  • Thought leaders are the informed opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise. They are trusted sources who move and inspire people with innovative ideas; turn ideas into

    reality, and know and show how to replicate their success.

    Leading in the digital age

  • Actions speak louder

    than words

    When it comes to leadership there is no

    one size fits all. Every leader has

    his/her own personality, style, and

    approach to leading teams, and leaders understand their own limitations and

    always keep their teams informed.

  • Good Leaders know that success is a

    team effort. They realize that it takes a

    diverse team to truly innovate. They

    search for passionate people in diverse

    areas of expertise and bring them


  • Great leaders empower their teams to

    do more, they are very protective, and

    they are clever in applying their

    knowledge and experience in order to

    move forward and avoid mistakes

    either they themselves or others made

    in the past.

  • Leading in the digital age

  • The technological advances of the digital age

    have allowed the global workforce to be better

    connected, more collaborative, and have

    greater personal impact than ever before.

    More information is immediately available,

    through more channels, than at any time in

    history. Clearly, workplaces are now optimized

    for high levels of workforce engagement

    Leading in the Digital Age

  • The rise of the global economy and the

    coming of the digital age have made the

    engagement question much more complex

    for the leaders.

    Organizations everywhere are coping with

    unprecedented levels of competition and

    pressure to perform.

    Managing Engagement

  • These organizations are facing a legion of

    issues that include the need to become more

    global, the need to simultaneously become

    more frugal and more innovative, the need to

    manage new and different stakeholders, and

    the need to cope with political uncertainty,

    energy issues, and other factors over which

    they have no control

    Managing Engagement

  • Put yourself in the middle. Leaders should

    position themselves between the chaos of

    change and their people. Engaging leaders

    use their experience, insight, and knowledge

    of the organizations business and culture to

    help people make sense of changes and to

    better participate in them.

    Leading in the Digital Age

  • Invest in your people. Leaders should

    personally invest more effort in talent

    development during periods of high change.

    By doing this, engaging leaders use change

    as a medium for accelerating the

    professional development of the workforce.

    Leading in the Digital Age

  • Focus on a higher purpose. In times of

    uncertainty, engaging leaders use higher

    purpose to keep people focused on their

    ability to shape the future of the


    Leading in the Digital Age

  • Leave no one behind. False urgency is a

    phrase we use to describe a phenomenon

    sometimes mentioned by the executives.

    False urgency occurs when change anxiety

    becomes so high that fear takes over and the

    only thing that matters is staying on schedule.

    There is just no time for things like human

    development and engagement, and the

    workforce is left behind.
