Abstract:The differences between managers and leaders are defined. The role of leader is to be creative, which means creating the rules that managers follow. These rules can be taught to the managers, but how are the leaders to learn? The Leadership Development Programme at Ashridge Management College emphasises feedback skills, techniques of creativity, and also the importance of language for transmitting ideas.
