Manager vs. Leader


This is from “On Becoming a Leader” by Warren Bennis:

  • The manager administers; the leader innovates.
  • The manager is a copy; the leader is an original.
  • The manager maintains; the leader develops.
  • The manager focuses on systems and structure; the leader focuses on people.
  • The manager relies on control; the leader inspires trust.
  • The manager accepts reality; the leader investigates it.
  • The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective.
  • The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why.
  • The manager has his or her eye always on the bottom line; the leader has his or her eye on the horizon.
  • The manager imitates; the leader originates.
  • The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
  • The manager is the classic good soldier; the leader is his or her own person.
  • The manager does things right; the leader does the right thing.

Note: Cachero is neither. Need I say more.

Peace.

    Awesome!

    I loved reading and learning from a book called A Dogs Advice to Leaders. I thought to myself, “My boss could sure use this book!” But how rude would I be giving him a book on Leaders when I’m not one lol!
