This Guy Knows Something. And I'm Listening!

One of Scott's best pieces of advice? "People don't want to be managed. People want to be lead." Leaders BELIEVE, ENCOURAGE, CHALLENGE and CORRECT when required. Now watch, enjoy and let Scott's message sink in!

Finished the video and want a quick review in writing? Here it is.

Managers...Leaders...
are about stability are about change
make rules leaders break them (for the benefit of all)
plan details set direction
execute culture shape culture
avoid conflict recognize conflict will happen and use it as an asset
take existing roads travel new roads
tell their vision sell their vision
operate with a transactional style operate with a transformational style

So what do you think? Anything that Scott missed? Any great ideas on how to maintain a leadership approach versus managing your way along with your business? Feel free to leave your comments below.
