Task 01 Task 01-(a) According to (Gold, 2010), leaders are those who can develop a form of collectiveconsciousness inside themselves and can express the same feeling with a clearer manner andcreative manners where people also gets reflexion of their thoughts and so, leaders inspirepeople before and while lead. On the other side, manager is a person who manages resourcesby planning, organisation, controlling and managing in a effective fashion so that wholeinitiatives can bring desired and targeted level of outcomes. Discussion on the difference between leaders and managers, Mintzberg developed a model ofmanaging which provides clear understanding on the difference between leaders andmanagers. There is very common academic conception that managers are the policyimplementer and follow the path of leader in where leaders want to go or reach. All of thesecan happen only because, leaders has greater extend of freedom and independence to dothings in their way along with executive power to do that. Managers in organisations aremore linked to day to day operation but also engage in planning, organising and controllingall the resources need to employ in order to engage these to day to day operation such as in arestaurant manager need to make weekly schedules, always keeping eyes on stocks andavailability of materials in stock and in use so that they not become run out of stock,supervision of cleaning outcomes every day, fix the problems if any anything occurs, etc.Leaders on the other hand, is has little intension to remember who is work in which day andwhat will be each employees role neither what is the situation with stock and inventory inevery day. Leaders look critically to the works of employees and managers to find suitabilityof the current flow of work with organisational goals and objectives. Leaders do thingsdifferently as they do think differently. They are the people who understand the overallcircumstances of the organisation against market conditions, investor expectations and allother stakeholders expectation; thats why, in the first part of this part author has said thatleaders holds collective consciousness and do things according to that. To be leader one bnoneed to have specialist knowledge in one areas pof business operation but need to have an
leadership skills and attitude so that he can integrate all the bsueinss operations in the linewith overall organisational goals and objectives. Leadership can be various types and stylesbased on the difference between organisation, cultural aspects of that country where thecompany is operating, is it military organisation or business organisation or social carefacilities; profit or non-profit organisations, etc. the types of management also depends suchkinds of internal and external factors however, there are major similarities exising amongmanagers in all organisation. The primary role of a manager in a organisiton is doing thingsin a organised way so that managers and all people can keep track of it and make control overthe situation. continuous production without any idea about market demands, existing ordershas placed, the situation of stock and inventory, the level of quality, situation in distributionchannel can lead a company towards total disaster. So managers role in organisation, arevarious such as a planner, organiser, controller, director.Task 01(b): McDonalds is the biggest fast food chain restautant in the world has operating more than 177countries. All of its store has store manager and all of the region Mcdonands operating itsbsueinsss are spotted as different division lead by regional managers and leaders. On theabove, all region has also corporate office where the leaders with ebormosus power to dictateare working. In this complex form of organisation, the role of managers and leaders arecomplex too as one place managers is subordinate of high rank officials in this very largecorporation. The role of managers in each of McDonald’s stores is making sehedules for itsemployess. Store managers does not have power to recruit people from outside exceptprovide some recommendation for internal recruitment. On the other hand, leaders havepower to recruit people or terminate jobs for people they find are ultimately not productive.The role of leaders is to inspire people and leaders do come in the staff meeting or trainingprogrammes or visiting the stores and talks with people and make a good relation with itspeople and helps them to find an internal organisational solution to do better where anyemployees are showing weakness. Instead of putting fear of termination or financialpunishment, leaders in McDonalds inspire people by consultation and linking them with thebalance of work and personal life.
