Management Leadership Roles

See attached file.

With your promotion to category leader from category manager, you believe that you now occupy a leadership role within the organization and that the position will in fact validate your classification as a leader. On the other hand, fellow category leaders insist that the position has limited, if any, impact on being a leader. Carefully consider these opposing opinions, along with the titles and concepts of manager and those of leader. Use research, scenario details, and self-assessment to clarify your perspective. Share your findings with your peers on the Discussion Board, providing arguments for each viewpoint, highlighting the most appropriate one, and indicating exactly what contributes to your leader status.
