About Managerial Leadership

An executive I once worked with described Management as the organization and manipulation of Priorities, Resources and Processes.

Leadership, he said, was the coordination of Principles, Purposes and People.

Individuals who work in organizations in management roles usually must serve both functions as Managers and as Leaders.  And so we must integrate the two functions, which we will call Managerial Leadership.

When done well, Managerial Leadership requires focus , understanding, and constant strategizing.  It is not easy, though it does become easier the more one knows.

Not only is a Managerial Leader operating in a constantly changing Kaleidoscopic environment, but they may have constantly shifting priorities, shifting personnel, shifting resources and goals, shifting executives and their intiatives, even shifting doctrines.
