This statement by Peter Drucker, considered by some as "the founder of modern management", is at odds with how we use the terms “management” and leadership” in our everyday language: Instead of stressing the differences, we tend to use the two terms interchangeably. There is a good reason for that: often, leaders also manage. More importantly, I firmly believe that, in order to be a good and effective manager, you also need considerable leadership qualities. However, as Drucker’s statement suggests, there are important differences.
We at be.boosted not only believe in what has been touched upon in this Tidbit - we understand it to be an integral part of our mission. Having said that, to partake in and benefit from what we have to offer, including the fellowship, you don’t necessarily need to aim at becoming the sole head of a team, a company or an organisation. What we look for in our fellows is the willingness to challenge themselves to be their best self, to take on responsibility for themselves and others, and with that not only contribute, but make a positive impact wherever they are.
Does that sounds like you want to take the challenge? Apply to our fellowship today.
