Question: What is the difference between management and leadership?

D. Quinn Mills: Well, management is focused on efficiency in results. Leadership is focused on adjusting the change, long-term goals, on what ought to be, and they are both by the way--they really are three categories--they are both distinguished dramatically from administration. So, there is really administration, management and leadership, not just leadership and management and an awful lot of our people including many of our people in top offices are extremely confused about this and have administration all confused with management and leadership and that’s a big problem that we have right now.
