Are you a leader or a manager (or both)?

The difference between leadership and management per the Harvard Business Review:


  • Establishing direction – Developing a vision for your organization and creating strategies to achieve that vision;
  • Aligning people – Communicating direction to influence teams and coalitions so they understand the vision and strategy;
  • Motivating, mentoring, and inspiring – Energize your people; and
  • Producing change – Often to a dramatic degree.


  • Planning and budgeting – Establishing detailed steps and timetables and allocating appropriate resources;
  • Organizing and staffing – Establishing structure, delegating authority and providing policies and processes;
  • Controlling and problem solving – Monitoring and organizing; and
  • Producing predicability and order – Consistently achieving budgets and targets.
