What is a Leader? (1 Disc)

There is a big confusion in the field on what management is granted. The word that was originally used to describe the process was "administration." But since administrators failed to produce the desired results, the word "administrator" is now used mostly as a synonym for "bureaucrat." So a new word came into use: "Management." But when the desired outcomes were still not achieved, the word "management" came to denote only the middle level of the hierarchy - and the need for a new word emerged. That word was "executive"; thus we began to hear the terms "executive training," "executive action" and "Chief Executive Officer." When even this did not work, the word "leadership" evolved to replace "executive," and this is where we are today.

Although there are plenty of books that will tell you how leadership is different from administration, which is different from executive action, which is itself different from management, I suggest that this new fad will not work either. In fact, I would not be surprised if in the next few years yet another new word is coined to define the process, while the word "leadership" is redefined to mean some piece of the managerial process or hierarchy - exactly what happened to the words "administration" and "management."
