Past studies shows field independent (FI) are good leaders and field dependent (FD) are good managers (Bennis & Nanus 1985). This paper tries to synthesize previous studies and emphasize that there is relationship between cognitive style category (FI, FD) and leadership-management. FI is representing good leaders while FD is good managers. Manager uses a formal, rational approach but leader exercises passion and stirs emotions (Bacon & Struggle, 2004). The leaders are focused on bigger picture as opposed to manager (Kotter, 1988). How far does FI/FD individual styles can be applied in curriculum management context also will be discussed.
