What is the difference between management and leadership? In To Lead Is to Serve, Brother René Stockman explores this all-important question.

While management skills can be learned through study or on the job, leadership skills evolve based on our personality over a long period of time. Leadership style is shaped by our successes, our failures, and people’s response to it.

Leading people is a spiritual role. Leaders become examples for others. A key role for leaders is to defend those in their care—to be their spokesperson, their advocate, their servant.

René Stockman, a Brother of Charity, has served God and others as a teacher, the head of a school and the head of a psychiatric hospital, a provincial superior and superior general. Brother Stockman is the author of several books, including Ubi Caritas: Facing the Crisis in Consecrated Life Today (Novalis). He is based in Belgium.
