Here, the Katzenbach Center perfectly demonstrates how culture effects organizational change. It shows that 84% of people believe culture is critical to business success, but only 35% think their company’s culture is effectively managed.

TED Talks are a great way to learn from professionals, and in this great video Mark Mueller-Eberstein discusses the ‘Theory of Transition,’ where we deal with the emotions of denial, anxiety, fear, confusion, etc. This eventually leads us to discover new opportunities in the transition where we begin to be excited and strive for change; not only for ourselves but everyone around us. This transition is unique and one must first identify the vision and be clear how to impact, communicate, team-up and lead in order to achieve their change goal.
Some think managers and leaders are one in the same, but in while they both occupy positions of power, the key roles they hold are different.
Managers are more fixed, focusing on the task at hand until it is complete and measuring results in terms of efficiency. Leaders are more flexible, putting their focus on inspiring, empowering, and satisfying the group.
Managers are usually appointed, while leaders tend to emerge naturally.
This infographic reminds us that not every leader is a manager, but every manager has to show leadership.
