Managing or Leading Employees

I believe we manage things and inanimate objects and we lead people. That's because we cannot control other people's attitudes, feelings, behaviours; we can only influence them to act in a way that's desirable to us.
As a change leader, we first appeal to their emotional need for change, set a future state vision of change, and describe the initial steps to start down the different path. This is the communication side.
We also must give them reasons to believe change can be executed. This means enabling the employees with time and money to participate in the change.

Managing Change or Employee Feelings About Change?

Yes on appeal to their emotions and giving them reasons, but we should also empower them by asking them to read theories of change so that we do not test our choices on them but rather we all participate with the same or equal level of knowledge.
