Public health leaders are workers that can work with emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills and the ability to inspire and empower and also manage time, financial and human resources and carry out a mission. These encompass just some of the skills that can be divided between the categories of leadership and management.
While the line can often-times be blurred, leadership skills are related to development, innovation and motivating change and require a more creative approach. Management relates to the skills required to achieve efficiency and deliver services. Both skillsets are of utmost importance for those in leadership positions.
Good management is inter-changeable with the idea of non-financial incentives and is key to an organization’s success. Without effective managers, organizations struggle to retain employees and are forced to spend time and money training new hires. There is a saying that “employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers”. Good managers are people that possess both management and leadership skills.
They are people that can delegate tasks, direct others, resolve conflict, and make decisions and plans that solve problems.
