One of the questions often asked by managers is “what is the difference between a manager and a leader?”
The answer is social intelligence.
Authentic leaders are socially intelligent. They are acutely aware of who can be lead and who needs to be managed. Someone who can be lead has a growth mindset and can be mentored to achieve higher results. Someone who has a fixed mindset is typically an underachiever and will not respond to mentoring in the same way. The ability to get the most out of these mindsets distinguishes a manager as socially intelligent. This manager is able to adapt faster to different personalities, behaviours and skill sets within the team. As an authentic leader this manager will achieve more consistent long term results and come up with more sustainable solutions to short term challenges.
