What Leaders Really Do!

What Leaders Really Do!

Paint

Often times we tend to blur the lines between management and leadership.  If you’re a manager, you’re automatically a leader they say.  I disagree.  While you can be a leader and a manager, they are not mutually exclusive. A manager can work to develop a higher capacity for leadership and visa-versa, however; the two are distinctly different and have different roles.  The role of a manager is to plan, organize, and control and to drive the performance of those who report to them.  Leaders on the other hand are all about driving change.  John Kotter, a retired Harvard Business School Professor and expert on change said it best:

They [leaders] don’t make plans; they don’t solve problems; they don’t even organize people.  What leaders really do is prepare organizations for change and help them cope as they struggle throughout.

To be a leader, you must be able to lead change effectively and that’s what we do here at Collaborative Dynamics.  Help your organization and leaders with change.
