PMAN102 - Managers and Leaders

Read the following quote about management and leadership:

“If management is defined as getting things done through others, then leadership should be defined as the social and informal sources of influence that you use to inspire action taken by others. It means mobilizing others to want to struggle toward a common goal. Great leaders help build an organization’s human capital, then motivate individuals to take concerted action.”

(Carpenter, Bauer, & Erdogan, 2010: 12).
