Definitions of Leadership

There’s a definition of leadership that I’ve always liked:

Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things.

I came across a new one the other day that I also appreciated:

Management deals with complexity, leadership deals with change.

Do you have a definition of leadership that you’d like to share?

  1. I always liked this one (I may be paraphrasing):

    “Great leaders provide the resources necessary for people to do their jobs better.”

    The word resources can mean different things to different people. But I really like that definition.

  2. I think you meant “Leadership is doing right things”..

  3. Absolutely, VS. Thanks for catching that.
