Cutting through the clutter of management and leadership books, Manager vs.

Leader: Untying the Gordian Knot works to differentiate the terms manager and leader.

With these terms often used synonymously, misunderstanding leads to confusion and failed expectations at all levels of an organization.

Providing both academic and practical organizational examples, this book challenges readers with ranging experience and knowledge to explore management and leadership in a new and comprehensive way. Enabling readers to better understand the nuances between leading and managing, this book provides historical context while guiding readers in understanding the impact each role has within an organization.

Through brief explorations into Organization Development and Transformation, this book works through the state of the leadership concept and provides insights into future challenges for managers and leaders. Armed with historical context, a foundation to explore the terms manager and leader, and an open mind, readers will be able to more effectively manage expectations and interact with others whether professionally or personally.
