If you're not uncomfortable in your work as a leader, then you're probably not living up to your potential.
Gain followers. Make change. Get uncomfortable.
"A manager can’t make change because that’s not his job. His job is to complete tasks assigned to him by someone else in the factory. Leaders, on the other hand, don’t care very much for organizational structure or the official blessing of whatever factory they work for. They use passion and ideas to lead people, as opposed to using threats and bureaucracy to manage them. Leaders must become aware of how the organization works, because this awareness allows them to change it.”
"Managers manage a process they’ve seen before, and they react to the outside world, striving to make that process as fast and as cheap as possible. Leadership, on the other hand, is about creating change that you believe in.”
Where managers have employees, leaders have followers.
Where managers make widgets, leaders make a change.
