Over the years, I’ve seen people differentiating between what it means to be a leader or manager. The reality is leaders do things to manage, and managers do things to lead. So, who cares what label people want to put on themselves.

I think we’re all managers. Do you maintain a list of things to do? Do you keep the house stocked with food and other essentials? Do you ensure you’re following a process to deliver a quality product to your customer? Then you’re probably a manager.

We all have the capacity to be a leader. However, you are only a leader if people are following you. People will follow you when you find the people who believe what you believe, and they feel inspired to follow you in some way.

So, when someone asks if you’re a leader or manager, simply answer by saying, “Yes.”
