The bridge between leadership and management is a narrow path: You can simultaneously be a leader and a manager simply because leadership and management skills are the fundamentals of social and organizational behavior. Social and Business models rely on the behavior of those who implement them and associate directly or indirectly with them. Furthermore, in any societal arrangement, there is always competition between societal or/and organizational members. Last but not least, some feel much entitled to lead and sorely to manage the affairs of society and organizations.
