Leadership is unfortunately rarely addressed in managerial practices. A lot of time is spent developing managerial skills without integrating those of the leader. These skills are complementary and inseparable. The leaders are focused on change and management, while the managers are focused on the management of activities and their complexity.
The complementarity of the two often ensures an improvement in the performance of a team on an individual and collective basis and therefore the achievement of results.

Change is a state of affairs whose objective may be daily or medium-term. Change is made necessary by the necessity to improve technical, human and/or organisational performance. Effective change must be accepted by the members of the board of directors, by managers and by employees.
Change must take place in a serene climate, where stress must be turned to a positive, energizing and non-destructive factor. The conditions for achieving change must be understood at all levels of the company. Each actor of the company must be able to express himself in his working environment in order to better understand the transition between the situation before change and the situation after. Whatever the nature of the change, it must be systematically accompanied by communication adapted to the actors.

Managing people to improve operational performance in the short and medium term is a major challenge for a company. Making the right decision is just as important for a manager. It must take into account the political, economic, technical and social context in order to further federate the team and keep those concerned by the decision in a positive dynamic. This is why managers must have basic legal knowledge to manage their sometimes complex situations.
