Should Management and Leadership Be Separated?

What makes a great leader? What makes a great manager? Should the two be separated? I like to use this quote from author and management consultant Henry Mintzberg to help illustrate the point:

"Managers who don't lead are quite discouraging, but leaders who don't manage don't know what's going on. It's a phony separation that people are making between the two."
