Regardless of your title, do you think more like a manager or a leader?
What is the mindset of a manager?
What is the mindset of a leader?
These are good questions, and often, people get confused about this topic of managing vs. leading. One of my favorite quotes from Peter F. Drucker can bring more clarity to this matter:
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”
Which one is best, managing or leading? The answer may surprise you! As I reveal in the chapter of my new book, Principled Profits, both managers and leaders are equally important and necessary for any organization to excel. Great managers and great leaders need each other to reach their full potential.
The more you know about this topic, the better you’ll be able to lead and manage the people and assets in your team or organization. There are so many other aspects to managing and leading, but the characteristics mentioned above are some of the best ways to begin the journey to better understanding.
Success in this area starts by understanding what your natural bent or leaning is when it comes to managing and leading. The best way to determine that is through my Leadership Identity Assessment – which comes bundled with my new book, Principled Profits – Outward Success Is an Inside Job.
