business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

I was surfing the web the other day and found the following sentiment from Seth Godin, marketing entrepreneur and author, that I thought succinctly summed up the difference between management and leadership. I’m paraphrasing and condensing here, but essentially what he wrote is:

Managers get people to do what they did yesterday. (Maybe faster. Maybe cheaper. Maybe.)

Leaders push the enterprise forward. (And they know they need a team to do so.)

We need both. (We also need to know the difference.)

I thought that was well-said. Eye-Opening. And worth sharing.
