Harness extra energy through a sense of mission

Chapter 13 in ‘The Corner Office: How top CEOs made it and how you can too' by Adam Bryant begins by asking what the difference is between management and leadership. Management is about results, answers the author. “You're given certain assets – people, money, equipment – and you're expected to make the most of them to deliver an expected outcome. Management is quantifiable, measurable, almost a science. Companies can gain a significant edge by being adept practitioners of the discipline.”
