Stop Managing and Start LEADING!

“People don’t want to be managed. They want to be led. Whoever heard of a world manager? World leader, yes. Educational leader. Political leader. Religious leader. Scout leader. Community leader. Labor leader. Business leader. They lead. They don’t manage. The carrot always wins over the stick. Ask your horse. You can lead your horse to water, but you can’t manage him to drink. If you want to manage somebody, manage yourself. Do that well and you’ll be ready to stop managing and start leading.”

– As published in the Wall Street Journal by United Technologies Corporation

  1. I would definitely choose to follow a leader who lead himself and walk the talk. That is so much more inspiring. Enough of leaders who try to manage and change other people when they are not doing it themselves.
