"Management is doing things right; Leadership is doing right things"

— Peter Drucker

In today's post, I want you to consider whether you're a leader  or a manager when running your business and team.

Characteristics of Leaders vs Characteristics of Managers:

You can become an excellent manager without becoming a good leader, but you cannot be an excellent leader without becoming a good manager. Today I'll layout attributes of each, so you can fiugure out whether you're more of a leader, manager or both.

Main attributes of a Manager (A manager asks how and when?)

  1. Controller
  2. Administrator
  3. Maintains Status Quo
  4. Short term viewpoint
  5. Initiates processes
  6. Does things right
  7. Stay Focused on the bottom line

Main Attributes of a Leader (A leader asks what and why?)

  1. Inspire trust from others
  2. Are great innovators
  3. Develop others
  4. Long term viewpoint
  5. Originate processes
  6. Does the right things
  7. Stay Focused on the Horizon

How many attributes do you have in each category? Which attributes can you choose to develop to help you become a better leader?
