It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
-- Sir Edmund Hillary
A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.
Leadership is the activity of influencing people to cooperate towards some goal which they come to find desirable and which motivates them over the long haul.
Leadership has to do with direction. Management has to do with the speed, coordination and logistics in going in that direction. The WORKERS are chopping their way through the jungle. The MANAGERS are coordinating, making sure the tools are sharp, etc. The LEADERS climb a tree and shout Wrong jungle!! The MANAGERS shout back Be quiet! We're making progress!
