Marcus Buckingham's Leadership Vs. Management Keynote Shows Contrasts

This leadership vs. management keynote by Marcus Buckingham establishes the utter difference between both. In fact, he believes they almost do the exact opposite.

Marcus' leadership vs. management keynote describes a manager as someone who focuses on making people more productive and achieve greater performance. As for a leader, he describes them as someone who creates enthusiasm and spirit.

The reason these two categories are said to be the opposite is because a manager focuses on uniqueness in an individual where as a leader finds something universal in everyone. In other words, a manager capitalizes on someone's unique skill and exploits it, while a leader takes the common fear of the future and gets people excited about it.
