  • B.E.C.C. Leadership – B.elieve E.ncourage C.hallenge C.orrect
  • The difference between leaders and managers is that leaders develop followers while managers manage resources.
  • Positional equity is key in the role of manager. Leaders focus on developing followers.

10 things –

  1. Essence. Managers are all about stability, leaders are about change
  2. Rules. Managers make the rules, leaders break the rules for the sake of the organization.
  3. Approach. Managers plan the details, leaders set the direction.
  4. Culture. Managers execute, leaders shape the culture.
  5. Conflict. Managers avoid conflict, leaders use conflict because they realize that there’s no movement without friction.
  6. Direction. Managers like to use existing roads, leaders like to create new roads.
  7. Credit. Managers tend to take credit, leaders tend to give credit.
  8. Decisions. Managers make the decisions, leaders tend to facilitate decisions.
  9. Vision. Managers tell – leaders sell.
  10. Style. Managers are transactional, leaders are transformational.
  • Be a world changer, be a leader.
