Leadership and management are  two terms that are used interchangeably but represent different roles  that have different functions. Understanding the differences and  similarities is essential for social work administrators as they develop  leadership strategies within organizations. Understanding the functions  associated with leadership and management roles can influence how  social workers supervise and work with colleagues in administrative  practice. As you prepare for this Discussion, consider how your  understanding of leadership and management roles might affect you when  you assume a supervisory position.

Post an analysis of the  similarities and differences of leadership and management roles as they  relate to human services organizations. Include how your understanding  of these roles may affect you as you assume a supervisory position.
