Projects are managed—people are led. Although there’s a place for both managers and leaders, a manager that leads may be the ultimate executive. Manager’s plan, track, organize, and initiate. Leaders coach, mentor, and inspire. There’s no reason one can’t do both.

The Quiz

This list of questions isn’t a documented double-blind case study. It’s based on what I’ve observed and learned over the years from successes and mistakes. It’s not meant to be the end-all authority on whether anyone is a leader, manager, or both—it’s meant to inspire reflection. With that in mind, it’s best to not over-think each answer, but go with your first instinct. The quiz is only as accurate as you are honest. Every answer should be what you do—not what you’d like to do or think is best, but the answer that fits your activities. Choose only one answer for each question.

What was your Score?

What was your score, are you more leader or manager? The more important question is…what did you learn about your leadership and management style? What truthful answer wasn’t what you knew to be the best answer you could give? Where did you hesitate and what questions were you uncertain about? Therein lies the value of this little 10 question quiz. Where’s your opportunity to be a better  manager, leader, or both? We’d enjoy hearing from you in comments. Thanks.
