You may have worked somewhere or heard stories from a friend or relative of a terrible boss. Or thought your manager did not appreciate anything you have done for the organization. You may have wondered how that person became a manager.

A manager can be a leader, but a leader does not necessarily have to be a manager. However, managers are often tasked with both responsibilities. There are four major functions of a successful leader who sets up employees to contribute to organizational success. These flashcards will cover the four primary functions of managers. In addition, you'll learn about a fifth function, that some managers need to perform.
