Field Marshal Sir Bill Slim on Leadership being not management

Leadership is of the spirit, compounded of personality and vision: its practice is an art. Management is of the mind, more a matter of accurate calculation, of statistics, of methods, timetables and routine; its practice is a science. Managers are necessary; leaders are essential.

~ Field Marshal Sir Bill Slim, Governor General of Australia, 1957
