Thought for the Week - 4/7/08
"The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why." - Warren Bennis
One would think that the question: “What’s the difference between a manager and a leader?” would have a simple answer. However, the reality is that there is a great deal of confusion and disagreement about the differences between a manager and a leader. The quote cited above would suggest that a leader is a visionary and motivator, while a manager is a doer.
Does this ring true? How would you define the difference between a leader and a manger?
Can a Leader manage and a Manager lead?
