"Management is about the how, where as leadership defines what and why a task is accomplished. Discuss".
it has to be 3000 words and I am just stumped as to how to even what I should put in it, how to structure it.. Everything.
Give me some intrinsic illness to study any day....
The language of the question is a bit odd, at least to this American.
Managers focus on the bureaucratic, the nuts & bolts of the task, issue, or problem. The leader is the visionary; what is the issue, why is it an issue, and why is it important for your team to achieve this goal? The leader wants buy-in, ideally wants people motivated to achieve this, not just doing it because they must.
So compare and contrast, probably using a specific issue to show how the leader would approach the task, vs the manager's approach.
But, consult your rubric and instructor to confirm your instructions.
