Leadership is a term used by many, but sometimes understood by only a few. Again and again I feel compelled to question ideas about leadership that seem to be based on beliefs, rather than science. In my opinion, there are two groups of people misinterpreting the term leadership, and I call them the "princes" and the "priests". There is a group of people who claim that "leadership is different from management", in the sense that leadership is about inspiration and "giving direction," while management is about execution and "maintaining direction."

WDYWFT,

Excellent! I will call this the article-du-jour, the post of the day! I especially like the part about delegation; it's crucially important. My only problem is that as the only employee of my small business, the only one I have to delegate to is my dog :)
