Leadership vs. Management

Which I definitely understood from the exercise we were involved yesterday that leadership are not linked with situation, that is to say truly leader is a person who regardless the situation, emergency or daily life could bring people together, inspire and make them follow. I always have question in my mind when it comes to leadership theme. You could be effective manager, but at the same time ineffective leader. Leader vs. Manager. If leadership qualities could be transferable, manager qualities are not necessarily? For example, you are educated to be a business or manufacturing manager, could you be effective hospital manager or manager in specialized industry, where you do not have even an idea how it works. In this case comes leadership. If you are a leader and manager you could adapt, could contribute and change, but if you are manager, with weak leadership skills I doubt if someone could make significant contribution or change something. I think you could be educated to be a manager but you could not to be educated to be a leader. Leadership, in my opinion is something in nature of person, you could read numerous of books on leadership, but if you do not feel inside of you that something drive you forward, something force you not to agree with current situation or current circumstances, regardless the fact that you well educated and you no in theory know how to be a leader, it is not the case that you could be a leader in real life. So the conclusion is that leadership could survive regardless any situation and management is not always. That is just my way of thinking and I could be wrong and I will try to find answer during LE module.
