Do you direct, manage or lead?

 Show Interest
Forget about job titles: I'm talking about the verbs; how you behave. I came across some old notes the other day from 1992 about leadership and it caused me to reflect on my own behaviour - do I always get it right? 

People who direct "tell us what to do for no obvious reason", people who manage "invite us to do things and sometimes explain the reason why", but people who lead "inspire us to do things for reasons that truly motivate us".

And scribbled in the margin I found this little gem! "The best kind of leader lets you know how important you are, instead of making sure you know how important they are!"
