Leader v. Manager (or lucky enough to be both?)

June 11, 2013

Daily ReadLeader v. Manager (or lucky enough to be both?)

The terms leadership and management are often used interchangeably, but there is a huge difference between a leader and a manager. Leaders aren’t always managers and vice versa. It is a rare individual that is both of these things. They have very different skill sets, both critical to success at a high-growth business. Understanding which you are – a leader or a manager, will help you surround yourself with others who compliment your strengths to ensure the success of your company.

Leaders:

  • Rally employees around a goal or vision
  • Inspire others
  • Represents company or organization with passion and zest
  • Are willing to take risks

Managers:

  • Execute vision
  • Very methodical and task-driven
  • Directs and oversees employees
  • Risk-adverse
