Managers tell people to do what they did yesterday, but a little faster and a little cheaper. Making the status-quo exhausting to maintain. So, you quit.
On the other hand, leadership is finding a common goal, aligning your views, and getting out-of-the-way. That last part is important.
You won’t find great leaders doing a lot of pushing or pulling—but I think the good ones are masters at persuasion (not manipulation).
