"Managers vs. Leaders"

Today I bring to you another transition from the About Leadership tool in the Leadership Toolbox.

In Managers vs. Leaders, James Colvard (2003) talks about the key differences between the two positions. His main premise is that "Managers provide leadership, and leaders perform management functions. But managers don't perform the unique functions of leaders."

Within the article he presents the stages of development that managers and leaders got through--"not perscriptively, but conceptually"--and gives leaders insight into building on strengths.
