A lot of people have trouble differentiating whether they’re a leader or a manager. It’s not good or bad to be one or the other. They both are equally important.

Here’s why:

-Without good managers, we’d all just be daydreaming because leaders are dreamers.

-Without good leaders, we wouldn’t know where we’re going.

Personally, I think we put too much emphasis on leadership and not enough on management. In other words, there is too much emphasis on thinkers and not enough on do-ers.

This was emphasized over and over again at the leadership conference I attended: Leadercast.

Andy Stanley, one of the best communicators of our time, defined a high-performance team like this: High-performance teams are comprised of people with extraordinary clarity around the what, why, and how along with a predisposition towards execution.

That definition literally screams that a high-performance team is a combination of leaders and managers.So how do you know if you are a leader or a manager? Tune in to hear the three questions you should ask yourself to find out.
