17 Key Differences Between MANAGERS And LEADERS
Every Corporate has Managers in it and hundreds of them. But is every manager a “Leader”?
The perception that 90% people have is when they get to a Managerial level, they’ve got to be having a Posture, be a Go-Getter, a Task Master and simply boss around the subordinates.
There is no doubt that this form of leadership works irrespective of how much the subordinates hate their boss.
But, what makes a person a true Leader is his ability to:
- Inspire his subordinates
- Encourage and Motivate them
- Make them feel that they are “In-Charge”
- Give them a sense of Ownership to Call the Shots, take important Decisions
Once this happens, the employees automatically drive towards accomplishing their targets/goals without having to push them. This reduces the stress for the Manager as well as the Burden for the Subordinates.
