In this issue's Knowledge Zone, change management consultant Alan Stevens emphasises the importance of leadership and management skills for those in charge - especially in times of change.

Leadership, he says, means focusing on future possibilities, while management means getting the job done today. Ideally, those in management positions will be able to balance the two.

If you're a manager - do you apply leadership and management skills in your job?
Are you more focused on one than the other? Has this changed in the current economic climate?
