What's the difference between leading and managing?
A leader provides direction, encouragement and inspiration to motivate a team to achieve business success. A manager coordinates the efforts of the team and the allocation of resources to maximise efficiency in achieving individual goals.
Both these roles operate hand in hand and both are especially so during times of crisis or a choke point.
As a leader and manager, it is most important that you “walk your talk”. Stay focused on the issues that are most important– the critical few, not the trivial many.
Be brutally honest about what’s working versus what’s not working in your business, in your industry and in the mirror and take action. Again – “walk your talk”
Business isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be hard and when you get through a crisis celebrate it!
All this and more in this week’s podcast.
