LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT, WHAT YOU MUST KNOW!


In realizing high productivity, good customer relationship and the decrease of operational costs in an organization or corporation you need high and smart performance of your human resources. For this to happen exactly, your staff members or your human resources need to be led and managed in an effective way. This is to say you need effective leadership and management process.

Leadership and management

These are two different processes of working with your staff members or working team that performs to realize result in your organization or company. Though they are different on their meaning and how they operate but they always need to work together.

Leadership

It is simply a process of showing your followers (for this case your staff members or subordinates) where you are supposed to go or what you are supposed to achieve out of your work or organization, a way to follow and how to go about. This is to say a leader is a person who knows well the vision of the organization service or business and he/she spend most of his or her time sharing with his followers this vision while motivating them to follow it until they achieve as it was planned.

A leader is not a manager for his/her work is not to manage people instead to lead people through the right way to the destiny. (We shall see the difference in the next paragraph).
In an organization you will always have two types of leaders; first are top leaders and second are middle leaders. Top leaders are those whom carry the general vision of an organization for instance a Chief executive Officers or presidents from whom the middle leaders are reporting to. Middle leaders are leading people in different organization programs, or departments, their work is a bit heavier than top leaders because they serve people on top of them (top leaders), they serve their followers (subordinates) they serve customers on the other side and they serve external stakeholders like sponsors etc. These people are like country directors, team leaders etc.

However for effective and productive leadership in an organization, both types of leaders need some skill set around effective relationship management, visionary leadership and styles, their personality mastery, organizational behavior and culture plus management skills for sometime a leader will have to manage his/her followers depending on the circumstance or advice his/her managers.

Management

This is a process of assuring the execution of planned objectives of an organization by your working team so as to realize expected results. A manager here will be a person who is supervising people or staff members to work on their roles in day to day schedule. A manager is following the vision as it has been directed to him by leaders through supervising a working team engagement in executing their provided tasks.

In 21st century a manager must also be a leader to some extent because dealing with people is not like dealing with machines. In today’s working world people have a lot of stressing situations in their personal life which may affect their working ability hence a manager must be concerned with people he/she is managing for him/her to help when they face personal or family challenges.

Employees always leave their job badly due to ineffective managers; bad mangers always decrease organization productivity plus destroying customer relationship and organization reputation. What they need is training on management skills which will enable them to be good at; building up their teams, work delegation, communication and presentation skills, managing people’s relation in an organization, project planning, time management, quality assurance of production process and end products plus participating his/her subordinates in planning their tasks etc.  

Remember:

For a leader to be successful he/she need successful and smart managers who will put into practice all his ideas. This is to say a manager is brought in an organization by a leader and they work together in motivating their subordinates to put into practice all the planned ideas.

Leadership and management in the 21st century rejects dictatorship and being bosses instead it needs friendship and good relationship between all participants of these processes i.e. leaders and managers against followers (staff members). They also need maximum learning due to the fact that with rapid technology development, situations changes every day, so regardless your talent in leadership or management you need to lean more skills which will make you fit into recent situation of your organization behavior and external forces.

BACK TO LIFE YOUTH RETREAT Dec 21-23, 2014


Why you must attend this retreat?

After a long time of struggle at TrueMaisha Consultancy we discovered that our energy at work is so down and some of us were stressed and frustrated with our own life hence our success kept going down day in day out as we kept on not finding a solution to the challenge. I personally decided to research whether this was also a challenge to other people out there and I discovered many people are facing the same and more.

Some felt stuck; stuck in their job, a relationship or a life that is not serving them, they wanted to take their life to the next level, they were real searching for their life purpose and they were ready to move into who they really are. This informed me that it was a problem to many people in our society I had to find a solution since I am professionally a psychologist. I had to organize a retreat which enabled me to see the purpose of my life; I evaluated myself from the past and got a chance to see my bright future life and destiny. I experienced more love, abundance and joyful aliveness.  The frustrations went off and energy risen up since I had a new vision around my personal life and business. This retreat had to be replicated to our team and changed everyone’s life from which performance and production increased at work.

Since then we came up with BACK TO LIFE RETREAT.

We want many people to succeed in life by unleashing their potential in this retreat. This time we are organizing a Back to Life Youth retreat to be held in Dar es Salaam Tanzania from 21st to 23rd December 2014. We have chosen to conduct it at the end of this year so that you start your new year 2015 as a new person with new strategies to improve your life. Most of us jump into another year the same as we were last year and we wonder why we are kind the same every year. It is due to the fact that while we evaluate and make new strategic plans for our business and organizations we forget to do the same thing to ourselves and we wonder why we are not achieving the plan we made for our business or organization at the end of next year.

Back to life youth retreat will;

Enable your mind relax and deeply meditate about your life destiny. We have chosen a quite place where you will be able to reflect and redesign the life you want to live. Under our coach you will be able to come up with new behavioral change strategy plus new goals and projects to be accomplished next year (2015) for you to succeed in life.

LET IT GO, FORGIVE ‘EM (Nchi ya ahadi taught us today)

Luckily this Sunday I worshiped at Nchi ya Ahadi church in Sinza Dar es salaam. I was totally consumed by their monthly theme FORGIVE, so powerful and I do not regret spending my 4 hours at this church today for my mind was unleashed and I felt so easy. I think this is actually what you need for you to succeed in life.

The teacher said FORGIVE and believe that your promise to get is constant just a matter of time and your persistence to wait will award you more blessings in whatever you need in life. Are these not good words to hear in your life? I bet they are and you real need them, next time joins this kind of churches you will probably meet what I met. FORGIVE ‘EM TO LET IT GO FOR YOU TO RELAX IN LIFE.

In my life I have realized that one among the major things that hinders my creativity level is walking with my anger in me simply because I haven’t forgiven someone. I discovered that before sleeping I must think about this person, when I wake up in the morning this person must pop up in my mind first, I will keep on thinking about this person even when I am working on something important. The bad thing about these thoughts is that I negatively think about him/her hence I feel the pain and some kind of shocks every time. It becomes very hard to let him/her go and leave me free if I haven’t forgiven.

Just imagine this is only one person who burdens me heavily, how is it if I am angry to two or three people and I haven’t forgiven all of them? I will probably go crazy and they will take all my time which I could create new things, which I could meditate and come up with new ideas and which I could enjoy my life with other people and whatever I have. This is to say that will be a grave of my success in life.

You will never have true joy until you let it go...

True joy or happiness comes from free and relaxed mind. And for you to have this state of mind you have to forgive everyone in your life. The easiest way to forgive someone is to do that to every human being before he/she has wronged you. This is due to the fact that we are differing in personality and perception on different things which assures imperfection to each other.  This means that it is obvious in life that people will do something wrong to you, they will offend you as long as we differ. You will also do something wrong to them unaware thinking that you are doing the right thing. It be your wife, your husband, your parents, your children or lovely friends, they will always wrong you somewhere so you better expect this and forgive them permanently so it is easy to handle your angle the time they do so.

When someone do something wrong to me, as my anger rise up I just remember and talk to myself that this colleague is struggling to make his/her life better by doing this wrong things, and he/she think is the right way though not to me but let him/her discover the truth as he/she continues. I have forgiven him or her though I will tell him/her know what I think is right about this, if he rejects I will let him continue until he discover the truth by himself for the truth never change. After talking this way to myself, positive energy with love feeling embrace my mind and I become happy and able to continue with my happily life.

After the teachings in church…

I could feel relaxed, I just prayed for those whom I was not okay with them by that moment and forgave them. Our pastor Haris Kapiga was the first person to confess in front of us that he has forgiven all people who had wronged him. He decided to delete these anger in his mind and let it go, I could feel his freedom as he was talking by that moment, then I was wondering how the teachings has been so powerful to transform someone’s life in few hours.

Do you want to excel in your life and businesses?

Simple! Forgive and let it go.
Since it is 100% possible I then wish you all the best in forgiving your people.
