The difference between managing and leading might seem fuzzy to managers, but it's crystal clear to their direct reports. Think about it: Would you rather be told what to do, or sold on a vision? Would you prefer to work for someone who rules with an iron fist and attempts to control your every move, or someone who empowers you to make decisions and encourages experimentation?
