To run a business effectively, you need to master the art of leadership.
You may be a good manager, that is, you may be able to create good systems and procedures for your team members. You may be able to draw up effective operational guidelines that will help team members get through the day-to-day detail of their jobs. But these are management activities.
Leadership is more about creating and communicating a vision, and motivating people to work towards it. When you lead, you focus primarily on human nature, rather than on operational details. And you do it with the aim of getting people aligned and moving in one direction–the direction that will make your business really fly.
How many of you are confident of your leadership style?
