In this episode, Bob and Joyce talk about the difference between leading and managing. They play with defining both and talk about the blend of leading and managing going on today. They mention an assessment tool they think is good for leaders.
The important role of a manager today is heightened due to the recruitment slump going on due to Covid. It is the managers of a company who are the key to hiring good people and retaining them. The new demand in managing is the nurture and psychological safety of associates.
They discuss how compensation should fit the value of managing and share some ideas about how to do it. They ask for people to react and come on the Podcast to discuss the manager role as the epicenter of success for a business (this is a challenge).
