I marvel at the amount of time spent seeking to define leadership and management. Trying to prove that their list of leadership characters traits is the one and only. Can we agree that the list of worthy traits is long, that most are needed and that our time would be better spent leading than on creating a finite list that tomorrow’s business needs would change?
Attempting to prove that managers do things right and that leaders do the right thing. Can we say that both managers and leaders do things right and do the right things? Life is big and complicated and fun and challenging. So are those things we call leadership and management.
What do you think?
