How to be an Influential Leader!

Step Up To Leadership


Leaders build people and manage processes. Managers manage processes... therein lies the key difference between the two. Going from Manager to Leader is not just changing the details on your business card. This is a totally different game. Managers must switch gears and think of their role in a completely different way. Many organizations place people in positions of added authority, but unfortunately do not provide the training to enable the newly promoted Leader to be successful. This adds great stress to the individual and the organization. We all know that being the star player doesn’t mean you will be the best coach for the team. The skill sets are different. Promoting the technical or functional specialists to have responsibility for others, without providing the best practice on how to lead others, is a formula for trouble.
