What’s the difference between leadership and management?

Management programs and even some companies talk about leadership, but few people outside academics seem to understand that there’s a very real and often misunderstood difference between “management” and “leadership”.


In a nutshell, management is what gets the quarterly financial results. It’s also often correlated with:

  • Influence, power, and control games.
  • The toxic, soul-crushing experience so many people share about their job, company, or boss.
  • Our current, historically low levels of employee loyalty and engagement.


Leadership is what you experienced the last time you were inspired by a boss or executive speech. It’s what has people voluntarily and gladly work overtime. It engenders enthusiasm, commitment, and loyalty.
