The General Manager, Chairperson, Director, Senior/Junior Manager, President, Premier, MEC titles matter less in leadership and management performance. The actual style that is applied in these leadership and management roles is the one that matter most. A number of approaches characterise leadership and management in public and private sectors. “Charismatic/transformational” leadership vis-a-vis “authoritarian/transactional” management style is the focus in this regard. The former has to do with an art of persuasion whereby people follow more for their transformational benefits than extrinsic rewards; and the latter uses monetary attraction for people to follow. Leadership and management under these circumstances should apply a style that balances both these approaches.
