“The multitude of books is making us ignorant.” ~ Voltaire
Tons of stuff has been written on the subject of leadership versus management. Too much, I think. Still, it remains one of the most misunderstood topics in business-building. That’s why, I thought it might be helpful to put together an interactive experience that simplifies and clarifies these two terms. It’s also meant to be a resource on the subject of leadership versus management with reference materials for further exploration and education.
Here’s an excerpt:
“At the time of this writing (November 7, 2011), a quick search on Amazon.com on “leadership books” returned 76,385 results. Another search on Amazon under the term “management books” returned 696,305 results. It is safe to assume that there are thousands of theories on the subjects of leadership and management, if not tens or even hundreds of thousands.
In my experience, neither of these subjects is so complicated that you have to read thousands of books to understand them. At their core, leadership and management are extra-ordinarily simple subjects, made unnecessarily complex by the thousands upon thousands of theories on them.
This page unravels the mystery around the subjects of leadership and management and presents a clear, simple lesson on leadership versus management.”
