Leading and Managing requires having the right people in the right seats. But that balance is rarely constant. At times, you may need to develop the skills of some, or, you may need to move some to another seat that better suits their skills.
Whether you’re the captain on a boat, or a leader in a company, it is the job of that leader to develop a vision, establish what matters and articulate why, set direction and inspire others. Great leaders possess dazzling social intelligence, a zest for change, and above all, a vision that allows them to set their sights on the things that truly merit attention. Not a bad skill set for the rest of us, either.
