5 Ways to be a Leader, Not a Manager

Leadership Instincts

There is a big difference between being a leader and being a manager. Being a leader is much more intense than being a manager.  Here are some tips which will help you to be good leaders.

1. Listen more and speak less.

Being a good listener and hearing the thoughts and inspirations of others can help you, even when you’re the one in charge. People feel good when they feel heard.

2. Consensus is good but direction and decisiveness create action.

Leading by consensus will rally a team around a common goal, but that alone is not enough to be a leader and create change. Consensus is good but direction and decisiveness create action you must guide consensus.

3. Anyone can identify a problem. A leader is part of the solution.

Leaders don’t sit around and complain about what’s wrong. They drive solutions. They figure out how to make it right.

4. Apologise publicly and gloat privately.

True leaders don’t just praise publicly and criticize privately. They are also humble enough to apologize publicly and gloat privately.

5. Give the hard message.

It’s very easy to praise somebody. It’s easy to give somebody a raise or a good review. It can be much harder, however, to have the tough conversations. You’ve got to tell them, and then you’ve got to move on.
