Leadership & project management – is it possible to manage projects without leadership skills?

Someone has told me recently that the word “project management” has become quite a confusing word as we have begun to overuse or even sometimes misuse it. We seem to convert everything into a pro­ject and then “manage” it. If we know so much about project management, as it appears from talking with colleagues and peers – why would we need to add a lead­ership layer on top of that and what for? After all, if we apply knowledge and best practices from project management, and see our project success rates improve, wouldn’t this suffice? As a seasoned management consultant, I would say – it mostly depends on what one is trying to achieve.
