People don't want to be managed; they want to be lead.

Whoever heard of a World Manager?

World Leader, yes. Educational leader. Political leader. Religious leader. Scout leader. Community leader. Labor leader. Business leader. They all lead. They don't manage.

The carrot always wins over the stick. Ask the horse. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't manage him to drink.

If you want to manage someone, manage yourself. Do well and you'll be ready to stop managing. And start leading.
