I appreciated your response as it says you are a true leader not just a manager. I believe there is often a difference in the roles of managers and leaders. A leader seeks for those around them to be greater than themselves whereas many managers just want to hang on to the status quo and can be threatened by those under them who excel. There is a book entitled Greater Than Yourself by Steve Farber which is a good book to read about leadership. It’s possible to be both a leader and manager. The leaders I have admired exemplified thoughtulness, caring, active encouragement, setting an example by practices, mentoring and believing in others.
