We can conclude that.. Leadership and management are categorically different and similar. Leader managers are possible. Principles, factors, and ingredients do not teach us but remind us ofdetails which we might not take into attention or forget to consider. Leaders talk of vision, managers of task completion. Leaders need managers for output, managers need leaders for direction. Leadership is acquired from those who have gone before us.Management is learned by being a worker and later a manager. Followers are the best leaders. Workers are the best managers. We can have the best of both worlds.
