This paper tells that the key to effective performance is determined by the competence of the leaders and the measurement of the effectiveness is complimented by the standards that the hospital achieves (Huber, p.778). Leadership is seen as that formal role bestowed on an individual to lead the people from one designated level to the next. It is important to note that the leaders see to it that the policies that the management has put in place are followed and implemented (Huber, p.778). They have followers and it is only enough to say that the act of following is voluntary and a leader is therefore not expected to be authoritative in any manner. A manager the other hand takes the role of the authoritarian person who tells his subordinates what to do with a promise of some incentives or rewards like a salary increment or some allowance if they do the job. Managers do things right, while the leaders do the right things. This is meant to imply that the managers do things by the book whereas the leaders do things by following their own intuition and instinctive notions for the benefit of the organization (Huber, 778).
