Managers, on the other hand, are responsible for ensuring that the vision is implemented efficiently and successfully.
Teams are made up of individuals who have different outlooks and abilities, and are at different stages of their careers. Some may be challenged by the tasks you assign and need help while others may be unchallenged, and may be looking for opportunities to stretch their skills.
