What's the difference between a manager and a leader?

It is a question that has been asked more than once and also answered in different ways.

The biggest difference between managers and leaders is the way they motivate the people who work or follow them, and this sets the tone for most other aspects of what they do.

At this Boardroom Briefing, John will address:

* How do you embody the qualities of leadership without neglecting management
* Where do you find yourself spending the majority of your time? Managing or leading?
* What management tasks can you delegate?
* What leadership behaviours do you need to focus on and improve?
