The difference between leadership and management per the Harvard Business Review:
LEADERSHIP IS ABOUT:
- Establishing direction – Developing a vision for your organization and creating strategies to achieve that vision;
- Aligning people – Communicating direction to influence teams and coalitions so they understand the vision and strategy;
- Motivating, mentoring, and inspiring – Energize your people; and
- Producing change – Often to a dramatic degree.
MANAGEMENT IS ABOUT:
- Planning and budgeting – Establishing detailed steps and timetables and allocating appropriate resources;
- Organizing and staffing – Establishing structure, delegating authority and providing policies and processes;
- Controlling and problem solving – Monitoring and organizing; and
- Producing predicability and order – Consistently achieving budgets and targets.
