    6 Simple Habits that
    Change Managers into Effective Leaders  |  LinkedIn, John Eades                                                     08/23/2017
    The debate about the difference between a manager and leader has been settled.
    Without question, there is a difference in both definition and behavior.
    Just to ensure we are on the same page, here are my favorite definitions of both
    in action form:
          Management: The manipulation of others for your own success
          Leadership:    Serving and empowering the lives that have been entrusted to you

    Unless you grew up in a place of worship or had really strong figures in your life that
    taught you about serving and empowering, you most likely default to management. 
    Why? Because it's what's taught in high school, college and organizational leadership
    development programs. In many ways, our environment is teaching us to be managers,
    not leaders, but unfortunately, that's not an excuse. Here are six habits that can help
    change managers into leaders.
