Leadership Toolkit

Managers vs. Leaders (LT001)

So, you’re a manager, right? Great! It’s tough getting there, and your experience and hard work have paid off! But are you a leader? Many people say they’re the same thing. Although they do come hand in hand, to really be a leader you need to level up on skills.

The main difference between leaders and managers is leaders have vision. They’re constantly driving towards the bigger picture, while managers maintain the status quo, often focusing on organizing others’ ideas to reach set goals. You might have great management skills like coordinating teams, delegating tasks, and monitoring progress, but what if the safety net of working from someone else’s vision is removed? To be a successful leader, you need to think like one.
