Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right.
They set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to “win” as a team or an organization; Yet, while leaders set the direction, they must also use management skills to guide their people to the right destination, in a smooth and efficient way.
