Leadership And Vision For The City

All of us know leadership is all about vision and orchestrating the troop towards fulfilling a shared vision. I came across this nice piece by Bruce MacEwen, the creator and host of "Adam Smith, Esq." a widely followed site which addresses the business side of the practice of law writes on the difference between implementers, managers and leaders. I can not resist quoting him. Excerpts:
- Implementers worry about "capability:" They're focused on the pavement.
- Managers worry about "viability:" They're focused on the layout of the street grid.
- Leaders worry about "culture:" They're focused on The Vision For The City
Implementers and Managers have to agree on Requirements: Which and How
Managers and Leaders have to agree on Objectives: When and Why
And in the process of managing change, Leaders focus on The Market, and what signals it's giving out about the need for change, while Managers focus on the Leaders. No wonder, leaders are hard to come by.
