Leadership vs. Management  (Management Domain)

CCME 1003

Leadership and management are terms that require two different sets of skills.

In this course, you will be asked to complete the Hogan Development Survey, which describes the side of personality that emerges when individuals stop monitoring their behavior due to stress or complacency. This assessment will help you identify where you might focus your development efforts to become a better manager. Since no manager can be expected to have strengths in every facet of leadership, improving strategic self-awareness, or the ability to recognize gaps between personal strengths and opportunities, distinguishes great managers. Great managers build upon their strengths and find ways to address their weaknesses.

Through the assessment process, you will enhance your own self-awareness by determining how best to leverage your strengths and address your areas for growth. By understanding this side of personality, you can recognize and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem. This assessment will raise your level of self-awareness by highlighting specific areas of strengths and weaknesses and offer suggestions to help you guide your career and become a better manager.
