INTRODUCTION Managers cope with complexity. They look at what needs to be done (planning and budgeting), pull together the people needed to get the job done together (organizing and staffing), and ensure that people do their jobs (controlling and problems solving). Leaders, however, cope with change. They look at what needs to be done be setting a direction rather than planning and budgeting, pull people together to do the job through alignment rather than organizing and staffing, and ensure people do their jobs through motivation and inspiration instead of controlling and problem-solving. The purpose of this exercise is to assess your skills and determine if you have what it takes to be a leader and manager.
