manager drives people,
leader coaches them.

manager depends on authority,
leader on good will.

manager inspires fear,
leader inspires enthusiasm.

manager says "I",
leader says "We".

manager says "get here on time!"
leader gets there a head of time.

manager fixes blame for the breakdown,
leader fixes the breakdown.

manager knows how it is done,
leader show how.

manager says "Go!"
leader says "Let's go"
manager uses people,
leader develops them.

manager sees today,
leader also looks at tomorrow.
manager commands,
leader asks.

manager never has enough time,
leader makes time for things that count.

manager is concerned with things,
leader is concerned with people.
manager works hard to produce,
leader works hard to help people to produce.

manager takes the credit,
leader gives it.

So, do you want to be a manager or leader?
Be a MANAGER if you want to survive alone....
Be a LEADER if you want to live along with your people together....
