Leadership versus Management
Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard gave an excellentdefinition regarding management and leadership in
their book, “Management of Organizational Behavior” 
,which help us better understand the qualifications of leadership skills:
 
Management is working with and through people and groups toaccomplish organizational goals.
 
Leadership is influencing human behavior, regardless of the goal.John P. Kotter, in his article
 “What Leaders R 
eally Do
” 
(Harvard BusinessReview), gave equally interesting definition which shed a different insight onleadership skills:
 
Management is about coping with complexity; it brings order andpredictability to a situation. But that is no longer enough: to succeed,companies must be able to adapt to change.
 
Leadership is about learning how to cope with rapid change.

Managers plan and budget. Leaders set direction.2.
 
Managers organize and staff. Leaders alignpeople by communicating their vision at all levels.3.
 
Managers provide control and solve problems. Leaders provide motivationand inspiration.
The difference between management and leadership
The distinction between management and leadership skills can besummarized briefly as follows:
 
Management is about exercising control. It is about planning, rewardingand directing people, training the employees, maintaining systems andprocedures, monitoring the schedules, and nurturing coordination amongthe employees. Management skills focus to ensure that systems would notbreak down and companies operate efficiently.
