The Perils of Confusing Management and LeadershipIn this video, John Kotter points out that in today's business world there is too much management and not enough leadership.

Leaders Are Born To Be Made | Bryan Deptula | TEDxNSULeaders can be made through events in their life that pull out the leader from within, and trigger changes in how they see themselves in relation to others. In this talk, Bryan Deptula reveals how the pillars of leader development—identity, intellect, and instances – can be applied to transform today’s worker into tomorrow’s leader, and make generations of great leaders. Dr. Bryan J. Deptula is an Assistant Professor of Leadership at Nova Southeastern University and co-founder of BKD Leaders; a training firm that transforms today’s worker into tomorrow’s leader. As an executive, he became fascinated with discovering the best ways to develop leaders that make organizations grow. Recognizing his life’s mission was to help others become leaders, he left industry behind to get an M.B.A. in management and a Ph.D. in leadership. He capitalizes on years of industry experience, his own research, and knowledge of leadership to close the gap on leading millennials and executives’ critical, creative, and strategic thinking. Deptula believes that the most important people in our lives are those who see within us that which we cannot see ourselves, for these people give us the courage and confidence to live into the best version of ourselves that we can be.

Stop Managing, Start Leading | Hamza Khan | TEDxRyersonUAccording to Hamza, managing millennials and knowledge workers the way we used to manage traditional factory workers can be disastrous. Speaking through his own experience of being managed and alternatively as a manager, Hamza makes the case that millennials must be lead, instead of managed and given autonomy to complete their tasks, so that they may grow and reach their full potential.
If you ask Hamza Khan about his role as a manager, he’ll tell you his approach to managing is to avoid it altogether. Before his success as an award-winning digital marketer and entrepreneur, Hamza was a student struggling to find a practical outlet for his creativity while pursuing a degree in business and political science at the University of Toronto Scarborough. In his third-year of university, Hamza switched his major and received a Bachelor of Arts to facilitate a future career in creative multimedia and storytelling. Since graduating, he has worked as a graphic designer and marketer, and teaches social media strategy at Seneca College. He is also credited with making Ryerson University Canada’s leading university in online student engagement.
