Command: forming and imparting visions: Well formed visions Clear goals and objectives for achieving the visions QUALITY, low volume communications throughout the organization Involvement to ensure results 2. Leadership: achieving visions through people: Standard Bearer Developing Integrating Command & Control : Command & Control 3. Management: implementing processes for achieving the visions Planning Organizing Budgeting 4. Control: ensuring resources went were they were supposed to go ROUTINE, high volume communications Coordination between activities Structure to reduce uncertainty Slide 5: With Control and Management the ultimate goal is "efficiency" -- addressing how well the process was accomplished (form); while with Command and Leadership the ultimate goal is "effectiveness" -- achieving goals and mission (results). Generally, to achieve "form," one must conceptualize "processes"; while to achieve "results," one must conceptualize "tasks." Thus, command and leadership decide what the organization should be doing, while control and management ensure that the resources used to achieve the results are used efficiently (without waste). Frameworks of Command & Control : Frameworks of Command & Control Command and Leadership uses the following framework: a. Creating - creating a vision or task to achieve results. b. Planning - how will you achieve the result. c. Implementing - putting the plan into action. d. Follow-up - ensuring that it gets done. Slide 7: Managers are people who do things right, while leaders are people who do the right thing. - Warren Bennis, Ph.D. On Becoming a Leader Building Excellence : Building Excellence Leaders do not command excellence, they build excellence.

Factors of leadershipThere are four major factors in leadership: : Factors of leadershipThere are four major factors in leadership: (4) Factors of leadership : (4) Factors of leadership FollowerDifferent people require different styles of leadership. For example, a new hire requires more supervision than an experienced employee. A person who lacks motivation requires a different approach than one with a high degree of motivation. You must know your people! The fundamental starting point is having a good understanding of human nature, such as needs, emotions, and motivation. You must come to know your employees' be, know, and do attributes. LeaderYou must have a honest understanding of who you are, what you know, and what you can do. Also, note that it is the followers, not the leader who determines if a leader is successful. If they do not trust or lack confidence in their leader, then they will be uninspired. To be successful you have to convince your followers, not yourself or your superiors, that you are worthy of being followed. Factors of leadership : Factors of leadership CommunicationYou lead through two-way communication. Much of it is nonverbal. For instance, when you "set the example," that communicates to your people that you would not ask them to perform anything that you would not be willing to do. What and how you communicate either builds or harms the relationship between you and your employees. SituationAll are different. What you do in one situation will not always work in another. You must use your judgment to decide the best course of action and the leadership style needed for each situation. For example, you may need to confront an employee for inappropriate behavior, but if the confrontation is too late or too early, too harsh or too weak, then the results may prove ineffective.
