"A great manager does things right, a great leader does the right things." - Peter Druker
A subtle but important difference.
Many people rise to manager level by being a specialist in a particular area or subject matter. It makes sense to have experienced and knowledgeable people in these positions. The irony is that the same specialism that has brought success to this point will now STOP that person’s career!
Leaders by necessity have to become generalists - we call it the “T” theory. Either you are a mile deep and inch wide (Managers) or you are an inch deep but a mile wide (Leaders). The really great leader provides clarity by working with teams of experts.
The sacrifice for leadership is your specialism. I have seen so many people fail at this because they can’t let go of the ego associated with knowing all the answers. To be a brilliant leader you need to have more questions than answers. This then leads to aligned clarity.

"Just a quick note of thanks for the course last week. It was an excellent course and having seen a few from different companies over the years, your course was the best one by some distance. There was plenty to use both in work and in everyday life, so thanks again and I look forward to getting stuck into your book" - Commercial Manger, SISK Construction
