Where Management Should Stop and Leadership Should Start
Most people don't know when to use management versus leadership
Can you guess how many books on leadership exist? My last count, which was a few years ago, was more than 257,000. Any idea what would happen if you were to read them all? My guess is you would be more confused about what leadership is than when you started.

Don't misunderstand the intent of this topic. It's easy to assume that you need to choose: either be a leader or a manager.
