The debate about the differences between leadership and managerial ability is perhaps as old as the time these two qualities came to be identified. There is a lot of discussion about what leadership and management are, which of these is more suited for organizations, whether one of these is born and the other made, and so on.

Managers carry out the task assigned to them in an efficient, methodical manner. They go by the set processes and rules. A leader, on the other hand, leads by example. She is an intuitive person who thinks of out-of-the-box solutions to problems. She is rarely bound by the rules and lessons offered in management books.

This quote by Stephen Covey: “Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out”, sums up the difference between leadership and managerial abilities succinctly.

Further, few quotes about leadership and management perhaps give added perspectives on the differences between leadership and management:

-        You manage things; you lead people – Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper

-        People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives – Theodore Roosevelt

-        Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things – Peter Drucker

-        Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall – Stephen R. Covey.

Despite the differences, an organization needs both

The differences between management and leadership are more pronounced when it comes to taking crucial decisions. A leader uses her intuition and takes decisions that are in the best interests of the organization and the people who get affected by the decision-making. A manager is important for carrying out the leader’s vision. In this sense, it is said that the role of the leader is strategic, while that of the manager is tactical.

Despite the numerous differences between the two qualities, both leadership and management are necessary and important for an organization. An organization needs both leadership and management if it has to carve out its path to success and progress. For the organization to be successful, both leadership and management have to collaborate and synergize. This blend is particularly useful in today’s global organizations, where the challenges are more varied and complex. There is a lot that is interesting to learn about the nature of the relationship and differences between leadership and management.

Documentation of Employee Discussions is all Important

As with law, the dictum for management is this: What is not documented does not exist. One can look back at the age-old Latin adage to this effect -Verba Volant, Scripta Manent, meaning “what is said flies, what is written stays”. This just about summarizes the need for documentation in organizations.Documentation is at the heart of organizations, because when employees take an organization to court for some strong reason such as termination -and there is no dearth of such lawsuits…See More
