Management & Leadership Psychobabble

I’m weary of management & leadership psychobabble (e.g., The manager does this, while the leader does that).

While not bullet-proof, two tenets that hold true more often than not in my day-to-day life as a knowledge worker:

  1. Command and Control Management is almost always unnecessary and irrelevant. 
  2. Leadership is often over-rated (see Dancing Guy video in Leaders Yes, Managers No).

Where’s my management & leadership psychobabble?

The Manager asks for the report, but The Leader gets his own damn report.
