Mind of a Manager Soul of a Leader

Mind of a managerHickman, CR. Mind of a Manager, Soul of a Leader. New York, New York: John Wiley and Sons, 1992.

Recommended by: Michael Nelson, Regis University School of Pharmacy

Star Rating (1-5): 4

Review: As the title suggest, Mind of a Manager, Soul of a Leader explores the differences between managers and leaders and between management and leadership. At the heart of this book is the premise that any successful enterprise requires both effective managers and effective leaders, and Hickman explores how the skills of each may be best leveraged. I recommend this book to leader development instructors who are looking for ideas on how to explain the difference between leadership and management or are looking for an effective argument that both are necessary for success.
