Leadership vs Management

Quotes from Ready to Lead by Alan Price, an interesting book, which tackles the subject of Leadership and how it is different from Management. The presentation is a little different, opting for a story to present the main content of the book, but it is nonetheless effective.

“Leadeship is the the unleashing of human passion towards a goal. And management is the organizing of skills and resources toward a goal.”

“Leadership builds a community of purpose. Management builds a community capable of purpose.”

The book stresses that the definition of Leadership is personal and differs depending upon the person and they have to come up with their own take on the subject.


“Leadership is about making people believe whereas Management is about managing beliefs.”
