There Is A Difference You Know
Do You Want a Leader or a Manager?Edmondson seems to think the difference in that a leader takes you places and a manger maintains the status quo. I disagree - a leader is about people and a manager is about things and programs.
A leader does not have to lead you to new places; a leader may lead you to doing what you currently do better. But a leader does not simply crank the wheels of the mechanism - they get into the heads of the people, they motivate, they encourage, they invigorate. Leading is an art, not a skill. Managing is a skill.
The church definitely needs more leaders - now if we can just figure out what they really are.
