The Difference Between Being A Leader And Leadership

Leaders help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to "win" as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.

It is possible to have an efficient leadership in any person to control the world so that he can shake the whole universe.

The difference is that leaders embody leadership mindsets and actions. It’s who you are as a person that makes you a leader. Doing leadership actions or holding a leadership position does not make you a leader.

"I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people -  Mahatma Gandhi"

Leaders help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to "win" as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.
Yet, while leaders set the direction, they must also use management skills to guide their people to the right destination, in a smooth and efficient way.

Leadership vs Being A Leader

Take a look at these examples of leadership versus being a leader and you’ll get the idea.
  • To cast vision is leadership. To be visionary is to be a leader.
  • To organize people toward an objective is leadership. To be influential is to be a leader.
  • To observe market trends is leadership. To anticipate change is to be a leader.
  • To step on stage and inspire others is leadership. To be inspirational is to be a leader.
  • To teach others the right things is leadership. To model how to determine right things is to be a leader.
  • To solve problems is leadership. To recognize opportunities is to be a leader.
  • To make decisions is leadership. To be a wise decision-maker is to be a leader.
  • To have an organizational role is leadership. To be have spiritual authority is to be a leader.
One of the key ways they do this is through Effective leaders link together two different expectations:
  1. The expectation that hard work leads to good results.
  2. The expectation that good results lead to attractive rewards or incentives.
This motivates people to work hard to achieve success, because they expect to enjoy rewards – both intrinsic and extrinsic – as a result.
Other approaches include restating the vision in terms of the benefits it will bring to the team's customers, and taking frequent opportunities to communicate the vision in an attractive and engaging way.

Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.
Effective leadership is about all of this – and it's exciting to be part of this journey....................
