Are You Leading?





There’s a neat little post by Vineet Nayar over at HBR Blog Network worth checking out on The Differences Between Managers and Leaders. It’s a quick read covering three main differences:

1. Are you Counting Value or Creating Value?

2. Do you create Circles of Influence or Circles of Power?

3. Are you Leading People or Managing Work?


The topic of leadership v/s management is more prominent than ever. The old belief in these being two different terms for the same thing is outdated, unrealistic, and untrue. Most employees are looking for true leadership from their management. It’s up to us to lead the troops we have as best we can. Nayar’s example of Ghandi is excellent and I totally agree that we need more people in these positions that can offer leadership with vision and inspiration.

  1. Are you counting value or creating value! Wonderfully put- do you have a trademark on that? 🙂

    I just wrong an article tonight about value: the positive distinction between you and others. Thanks for your original and fun posts- you have me thinking!
