Whats the Difference Between Leadership & Management?

Every once in a while I run across a phrase, statement or paragraph that I feel compelled to share. I decided to start doing that and am calling them "Insights". The word insight will be preceded by its theme.

Excerpt from discussion on difference between management and leadership

"Leadership is entirely different. It is associated with taking an organization into the future, finding opportunities that are coming at it faster and faster and successfully exploiting those opportunities. Leadership is about vision, about people buying in, about empowerment and, most of all, about producing useful change. Leadership is not about attributes, it’s about behavior. And in an ever-faster-moving world, leadership is increasingly needed from more and more people, no matter where they are in a hierarchy. The notion that a few extraordinary people at the top can provide all the leadership needed today is ridiculous, and it’s a recipe for failure."
