A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Leadership and management go hand in hand but yet we have great managers who may not be great leaders.
- Have you identified why?
- Have you had a high turnover because of your manager ?
- Have you analyzed the traits of the team and those of the manager – High D,or C or S or I?
Most of you may associate with the following descriptions of a leader and a manager.
Leader – one who inspires others by their actions and behavior. Leadership is a philosophy of life. Leadership is not about managing things but about developing people. It is about helping people to liberate the fullness of their talents while they pursue a vision that you have inspired them to buy into as a worthy and meaningful one. Great leaders are great teachers as well as great coaches.
Manager – managers direct and tell their team what to do. They plan for the achievement of day-to-day tasks and the goals of the department or group whom they manage. Managers, by nature, are concerned with outcomes.
A leader is not necessarily one with an organizational title but why don’t we have more managers considered as leaders?
