Leadership and management are not the same things. Full stop. Yet time and time again, we build high performers into (usually) bad managers and never focus on cultivating leadership for what it is, and where it lives in our organization.
It's an expensive waste of time and energy, and it's a shame for those cultural leaders who never feel 'promoted' because the org chart didn't allow it.
We tackle this topic philosophically and realistically this week, in hopes that leadership may be a more attainable and preferred goal for us all.

EP88 - FOLLOW THE (SERVANT) LEADER
Alexa and Tyson are joined by Ivan Quiroz - the multi-time demotee turned always optimistic retail manager extraordinaire, servant leader evangelist, and current VP of Operations at 2020 Onsite - to discuss exactly what servant leadership methodology is and how to use it. They discuss (shockingly) how self-awareness is key to improving management, the importance of ‘at bats’ in growing managers, the conundrum of promoting skilled workers, and the harsh reality that having the title of Manager doesn’t buy you followers - Nothing but big facts in this week’s episode... Big facts.
