What makes a great leader? And how is a leader different than a manager? Are you born with leadership skills or do you progress into management? There are distinct traits that separate the leaders from the managers. Leaders encourage people to think, to dream and to be and do their best. Leaders expect excellence because they model the behaviors expected within the organization.
Aspire to move beyond being a manager and instead strive to be a leader. Develop character within your workforce and pay your knowledge, skills and belief systems forward. Leaders make people and their organization better and develop the next generation of leaders.
