As Jack shared, the distinction between leading and managing is not helpful. Each necessarily requires the other. Where there is vision, there is also a task list for accomplishing that vision and vice versa. Consider how well you balance your approach to your staff. Take note of whether you tend to emphasize leading or managing and be intentional about growing in the areas where you are weak.
