January 4, 2011 § 1 Comment

This is a brilliant post by Jm Kouzes regarding the difference between leading and managing. Although much has been written to distinguish the two, this gives much deeper insight as it explores the root origin of leading and managing.

Do you “handle things” or do you “go places?”

§ One Response to Leadership Is Constant in the Difference Between Leading and Managing

  • Steve Sherwood says:

    I tend to resonate with the “go places” definition of leading. In strenghtfinders, my top two strengths are activating (moving) and command (getting others to also). That said, I feel that there are often times when I wish I was a better manager, a better process person. I used to teach and train toward Leading with Managing being its poor imitation. Now, in YM classes or YL training, I teach more for the need for both in appropriate measure.

    What do you think?
