Management vs Leadership

Management vs Leadership
Is there a difference between managers and leaders? To me, the answer is, Yes!. After researching articles about the differences between managers and leaders I concluded that my current work environment, which employs two principals, leans towards more managerial than leadership qualities. There is always the opportunity to become a manager, but becoming a leader takes a certain kind of higher learning and understanding in order to be practiced effectively
A manager finds immediate solutions, a leader questions the solutions. The term manager exemplifies the more structured, controlled, analytical, orderly, and rule-oriented person. The leader exemplifies a more experimental, visionary, unstructured, flexible and risk taking person. Managers and leaders think differently internally, therefore the outcome is different externally. Below are a few examples of the differences between managers and leaders.



Warren Bennis?a popular writer of leadership resources?quotes ?There is a profound difference between management and leadership, and both are important. To manage means to bring about, to accomplish, to have charge of or responsibility for, to conduct. Leading is influencing, guiding in a direction, course, action, opinion. The distinction is crucial?Managers are people who do things right and leaders are people who do the right thing.? In my opinion, these examples show the slight differentiation between the manager and the leader. However, this slight difference is what makes a person distinguishable between their power to perform and their power to transform.
