This paper examines how, in today's competitive world of business, the most important characteristics of any successful organization are employing people who have the right knowledge, skills, and abilities to ensure the organization stays afloat in the industry. In particular, it looks at how management models have replaced the traditional hierarchies and are based on the belief that people, who have greater involvement, will be better trusted in situations where they are required to make more important decisions about their work. It also shows how this approach puts knowledge, power, rewards, and a communication network at every level of the hierarchy in an organization and how this kind of approach not only motivates employees to care about their work, but also to know how they can do it better too.

From the Paper:

"In any effective organization, the task of the managers is to push, while the leaders pull the best from their employees. According to the renowned author, Jim Clemmer, "managers try to light a fire under people, leaders stoke the fire within." "Managers command, leaders inspire. Managers use position power, leaders use persuasion power. Managers control, leaders foster commitment." Managers don't really emphasize on building each and every employee through different methods but use the concept of "one size fits all" approach. Leaders work with people in the organization to determine the best areas of the employees so they can be further improved on for them to give their best for the organization to succeed."
