Management v Leadership

ID-100196481So what’s the difference between management and leadership?

We get this question on almost every management training course that we run!

Much has been written about the similarities and the differences but the one definition that says it all for me is the following:

“Managers do things right while leaders do the right things”

Leadership is more about inspiration, people skills, motivation and behaviours while management is about process, tasks and efficiency. There is a place for both so please don’t think that one is better than the other.

Thats all for now. What’s what your definition? I’d love to hear
