How to Stop Managing and Start Leading

Posted by Mit Patel


There's a big difference between managers and leaders.

If you're a managing director, you should be leading, not managing. Leadership needs to come from the very top.

In order to be the leader, you need to start leading. Stop telling people what to do and when to do it, and give your employees responsibility.

Take a step back from the day to day running of the business, and let other people make decisions.

Don't allow your employees to drag you back into tactics. Focus on strategy and encourage employees to problem solve on their own.
