Effective leaders are good managers, and good managers are effective leaders—an important fact that sometimes gets forgotten.


This article by James R Bailey, writing for Harvard Business Review, makes these points about the debate between management and leadership:
  • One of the more precise distinctions is by Warren Bennis :
    • The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon
    • The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why
    • The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective.
  • Overall, it’s OK to identify the two roles, but don’t forget that both depend on each other.
