Leadership Is Not Management (but you need both) Ross | December 1st, 2009
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” - Peter Drucker
Many confuse leadership and management. They are not the same. However, successful businesses must have strong leaders and strong managers (this is increasingly important as companies hire more people). Strong leadership without strong management can result in chaos and inefficiency. Strong management without strong leadership can result in tunnel vision and paralysis.
In the video below, I talk about the differences between leaders and managers. I’d love to hear what you think – please leave a comment and let me know if you find other, important differences between leaders and managers.
If you want to learn more about the differences between managers and leaders, I recommend you read Mark Suster’s excellent post – What Makes an Entrepreneur? Four Letters: JFDI.
And if you’re interested in other short videos on useful topics for startups and small businesses (fundraising, hiring, marketing, etc.), I invite you to take a look at my blog.
