Unit VII continues the study of organizational communication with a focus on leader and manager differences and styles. Solomon, Costea, and Nita (2016) in “Leadership versus management in public organizations” present an analysis between leadership and management. Leadership and management are not synonymous. Bennis (2009) lists eleven different ways managers and leaders differ (as cited in Solomon et al., 2016). A concluding point, “The most effective types of leaders are those with a high professional and managerial competencies, with solid knowledge coupled with managerial competencies,” (Solomon, et al., 2016, p. 150)
For this assignment, you will research the different ways that managers and leaders use communication to guide their organizations.
Feel free to use the same organization you researched for the Unit VI Case Study. You are not limited to this organization, but it may be easier to complete the assignment since you have already researched the organization in Unit VI. You can use the same sources for both assignments, if applicable.
Find an instance where the organizational leader communicates directly with his or her employees, investors, or customers. Analyze the message, the channel, and the potential for feedback. Do you believe that it is effective? Do you believe that it is the same type of message that a manager would send? Why, or why not?
Remember to focus on the communication styles of both leaders and managers. Strive for an equal balance between the two types of communication styles in your assignment.
Use the standard five-paragraph format (introduction/body/conclusion).
APA format should be used. The assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. Content, organization, and grammar/mechanics will be evaluated.
