A) All managers are leaders.

C) Formal appointment is essential in creating leaders.

E) Nonsanctioned leadership is as important as formal influence.
Explanation: E) The source of a leader’s influence may be formal, such as that provided by
managerial rank in an organization. But not all leaders are managers, nor, for that matter, are all
managers leaders. Just because an organization provides its managers with certain formal rights
is no assurance they will lead effectively. Nonsanctioned leadership—the ability to influence that
arises outside the formal structure of the organization—is often as important as or more
important than formal influence.
