Managers v Leaders

Consumed => “Three Differences Between Managers and Leaders” by Vineet Nayar on HBR.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

I believe one of the key difference is that leaders are mostly proactive. That is they constantly try to anticipate and influence what is on the horizon.

It should be noted that just because no one / few are following you, doesn’t mean you are a bad / ineffective leader. Every path through the woods has an originator. By the time you see the path that originator is often long gone. That is, who you are following might not necessarily be your leader.

Managers on the other hand are reactive. They take what’s in front of them and manage it.

With managers, there’s also a point of diminishing return. Bad managers are the ones who wait too long and are constantly swayed by details that should have been addressed sooner (rather than later). That is, a good manager should have some ability to think like a leader.
