Set goals that others can follow


Manager’s Toolkit
Harvard Business Essentials series


Leaders are different from managers. Leaders deal with ambiguity, change and opportunity, and push the train tracks where they’ve never gone before, while managers create order out of complexity, and keep the trains running on schedule. Thus explains Manager’s Toolkit, from the Harvard Business Essentials series ( http://www.tatamcgrawhill.com/).

Despite the above distinction, leaders must also manage, and vice-versa, the book adds. “To be effective, leadership cannot just be about inspiration and grand visions, but must also be about getting results. Managers must als o lead within their own spheres of responsibility.”
