People ask me all the time how to manage their people. I tell them that you can’t manage people. You lead people and you manage things.
Managers criticize people in public. Leaders criticize in private and do it from a constructive viewpoint to help someone grow.
Managers emphasize the things people do wrong. Leaders emphasize the things people do right.
Managers order people to do things. Leaders inspire people to do things.
Managers set goals. Leaders set visions.
So which one are you?
