How do you classify yourself as a manager or a leader?
“Management is about getting things done in the day-to-day, managing schedules, workflow, projects, and performance,” says Azulay. Managers set short-term goals, delegate tasks, resolve issues, and enforce policy. Leaders, on the other hand, influence and inspire people to action.
How do you know if you’re a leader or a follower?
You have to work to control your emotions. The best leaders have emotional intelligence; they may feel things deeply but they’re emotionally strong and stay in charge of their feelings. Followers are more reactive with their emotions, while leaders are more responsive.
What makes a natural leader?
A natural leader is inspired and inspiring, and often inspiring others to, themselves, be inspiring. A natural leader is the heart, rather than the head, of an organization, radiating both passion and love. A natural leader encourages rather than directs. A natural leader enables rather than the controls.
