Leadership vs. management: Recognizing the difference
Abstract: Although the roles of leaders and managers overlap to a degree, they aren’t the same. True leaders are relatively rare. And as law firms try to adapt to a rapidly changing business model and fierce market competition, they need leaders. This article compares the different tasks leaders and managers must perform, and in particular describes what leaders in small firms must do to implement effective strategic plans. A sidebar explains why some firms might prefer to hire a firm administrator to assume managerial duties.
