Six Essential Elements of Leadership: Marine Corps Wisdom of a Medal of Honor Recipient (Leatherneck Original)... by Wesley L. Fox

 

The author explicitly notes and discusses the important difference between leadership and management, a difference that is too often missed or ignored by many books on leadership. The significance of the difference between leadership and management is easier to recognize by considering the author's numerous examples of leadership in the Marine Corps. A person leads troops on the battlefield, but a person does not manage troops on the battlefield. The management techniques that can be successful in the day-to-day operation of an organization or office probably will be ill-suited and inadequate to train, prepare, motivate and lead people into combat.
