Management is Doing Things Right, Leadership is Doing the Right Things

In A Simple Statement: A Guide to Nonprofit Arts Management and Leadership, Jamie Grady writes:

As Peter Drucker once proclained, management is doing things right -- improving operational performance, maximizing revenues, and reducing expenses while increasing artistic production values and audience appreciation. Leadership is doing the right things -- setting organizational priorities and allocating human and fiscal resources to fullfill the organization's vision.

I like this simple distinction between leading and managing.
