Manager's Dilemma

- Managers spend energy as they fight through tough realities; leaders generate energy by creating new realities.

- Managers control to avoid crisis; leaders thrive in the game changing mind changing and system changing potentiality of crisis.

- Managers become mired in have to dos, thereby depleting energy; leaders seek want to dos, thereby restoring energy.

- Managers try to manage time, to get more out of people; leaders seek to foster energy by investing more in people.

- Managers tend to focus on limited resources (time, money) while leaders tend to focus on investing in unlimited resources of energy, purpose, engagement, vision and contribution.

- Managers hope to find life balance; leaders discover their own resilience formula for generating sustainable energy.
