ABSTRACT
The article explores the author's views on management and leadership. In a panel discussion the author attended, he cited one member of the panel, Henry Mintzberg, whom he described as something of a celebrity.

The author highlights the rise of leadership in every aspect of management. He believes that replacing management with leadership equates to the notion that leadership is other than or above management.
