People Must Be Led

untitledAt a recent leadership development seminar I was conducting, when describing the difference between managers and leaders, I used this quote from Ross Perot, “Inventories can be managed, but people must be led.”

Seems fairly obvious and straight forward to me … but unfortunately many managers miss the boat on this one. They spend too much of their time managing and not enough leading.

My leadership tip for you this week is to have you evaluate your leadership and your management to make certain you are leading more than managing.

Does your calendar reflect leadership activities or management activities ?

Leaders maintain a long-term perspective which is good for the future.

Leaders are constantly seeking change which is also good for the future.

Inventories don’t care about the future … but people do.
