Leadership Development

All organizations have managers. But how many true leaders are on your team?

Management is overseeing efforts to achieve pre-defined results. The destination has already been chosen, and the objectives identified. A manager’s job is to see that the job is done – with and through other people – on time, on budget, and meeting KPIs like net promotor scores. Managers are the critical component for avoiding anarchy, minimizing chaos, and meeting your organization’s objectives.

Leadership, however, thrives on an entirely different plane. Leaders first help define goals and objectives, then take ownership of them. Leaders inspire engaged managers and team members, inspiring at all levels of the organization. Leadership and engagement might be hard to define, but you know it when you see them. Unlike managing, leadership extends beyond our “downlines” to all areas of the organization. It allows people to influence different departments with different team members to provide a frictionless flow.
