Leadership vs. management

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Both are important, but management and leadership are different, say experts Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus.

Managing means “to bring about, to accomplish, to have charge of or responsibility for, to conduct.” Leading is “influencing, guiding in direction, course, action, opinion.”

Leaders show vision and good judgment (effectiveness), while managers master routines (efficiency).

To sum it up: Managers are people who do things right, and leaders are people who do the right thing.

— Adapted from Leaders, Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus, Harper & Row.
