The Management vs Leadership dichotomy

Sometimes you end up in a classroom doing a management course and you'll get presented with this idea that leadership is more important than management (or maybe somewhere someone might say the opposite.) . You'll then have Leadership (or management) thrown at you as the capability to work on at the exclusion of the other.

Teams and organisations need both.  Ideally they are tightly couple - sometimes of you are lucky you get someone who is great at both. More often we leverage the diversity of teams to make sure we have enough of both to support us to be successful.

Take a look at your team today. Where do you draw on your leadership and management strengths.  What do you need to do to shore up your deficiencies?

Dialogue over definitions

When I think about the word "variety" I think "good."  When I think "variation" I think bad.  It's funny how we have these inside-our-head meanings we apply to words.

The search for mutual understanding through definition is often fraught. Dialogue gets you there, not definitions.
