Words Of Leadership And Management Wisdom From John P. Kotter
Here are some words of wisdom from a 1990 Harvard Business Review article by John P. Kotter:
- Leadership complements management; it doesn't replace it.
- Management controls people by pushing them in the right direction; leadership motivates them by satisfying basic human needs.
- Strong leadership with weak management is no better, and sometimes actually worse, than the reverse. The real challenge is to combine strong leadership and strong management and use each to balance the other.
