What is the difference between leadership and management? This cartoon / comic strip is my attempt at describing the difference. It was for a client who wanted to promote a more holistic view of management and leadership within their organisation.
Leadership skills have become increasingly important as more and more non-managerial staff members are given responsibilities that used to be the exclusive domain of managers. But can leadership be learnt? Or are some people just naturally better at big picture thinking and inspiring others? And can you fluently switch between leadership and management mode of thinking? And will managers soon be algorithms? I wonder.
