Leadership vs management

Hi people,

I have just read a few articles and blogs on leadership. However, the most interesting discovery I have made today is the difference between management and leadership. I remember someone in the leadership and excellence class at the University of warwick raising this particular question. A book by Elwood N Chapman titled "Leadership: What every manager needs to know" highlights the differences in a tabular form. From what I could deduce, management seems more of a task while leadership seems more of a will. A manager views workers as employees while a leader views workers as potential followers. The most interesting of the attributes is that managers accept responsibility while leaders seek responsibility. In my opinion, I feel that management and leadership are both complementary as one cannot be effective without the other. This is a very interesting subject area which I still intend doing more research on.
