Article 4. – What Are The Differences Between Leadership And Management?


In this article, I explain the differences between leadership and management. I introduce the term ‘Pure Management’, and I explain why the discussion ‘Leaders vs Managers’ is a waste of time.


In this article, the differences between leadership and management are explained, starting with a look at the origins of each word. The origins of each word help to explain how they are different and that Leadership is about people and Management is about resources, and a manager has to do both in order to be effective. I introduce the term ‘Pure Management’ in order to explain how under the term Management, a manager must practice both Leadership and Pure Management. I also explain why the discussion on Leaders vs Managers is a waste of time.
