I ask my students the difference between leadership and management. Here are some quotes I’ve used to describe my thinking:
“Leadership can be more prestigious, more exciting and more visionary. But management, that’s about solving problems”
“Management is what’s missing in our ministry leaders.”
“If you get kicked out of a church, it’s usually not because of bad theology or even poor leadership … but because of bad management.”
“Leadership is about vision, but management is about solving problems.”
