Leadership vs Management

I was reading Steven Covey’s “Seven habits of Highly Effective People” this morning while on my Nordic Track (too cold & snowy to go for a run). Covey mentioned that leaders allow others to have ownership of results. Gofer managers stand over others’ shoulders and tell them each motion to do instead of communicating the goal.

Reminded me of when I picked my mom up from work a couple of weeks ago and she told me each turn to make. Mom, I lived in that house all throughout high school, I know where it is. I asked her if she did that to her employees too.
