Leadership is useless without management

I define leadership as the art of inspiring people to bring everything remarkable that they are, that one-of-a-kind each of us is, to everything they do.

Leadership usually fails without management. Management is the practice of making it simple for people to bring everything remarkable that they are to everything they do.

I caution, simple rarely means easy!

Across all walks of life I see leadership failing because very few people are managing.

How about you? Could you achieve better harmony between your leadership and your management? We all lead and manage. It is a matter mostly of getting the harmony between the two right for us.

Be the difference you want to see in the world
