Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why.
Failing organizations are usually over-managed and under-led.
The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
There is a profound difference between information and meaning.
Leaders keep their eyes on the horizon, not just on the bottom line.
Trust is the lubrication that makes it possible for organizations to work.
The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective.
The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon.
Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right.
