Business owners and entrepreneurs are often asked this leader vs. manager question regarding their management style. For many, these two words are synonymous; both are important for motivating people to work towards a common goal. Each is different, yet both roles have their place in a well-functioning organization.
The most successful companies have motivated leaders that inspire motivation at all levels of the organization. They are motivated for a real purpose, not just for money or other short-term rewards.
Is it possible to create an environment where great work just happens, and everyone is motivated?
“The future is in your hands, but only if you act today.”
Today starts a new year with new opportunities ahead. This time of year brings us to analyze what we accomplished in the past year and look ahead to what we want to undertake in the new year. It’s common to look ahead and set goals, or “new year’s resolutions,” for what we want to achieve.
The problem with this approach usually comes about two to three weeks into the first month. We get distracted and lose touch with what we planned for the year. By the time March comes around, the goals we set in January are long forgotten.
Leading a new team comes with challenges. You have a group of people who have grown accustomed to doing things a certain way. They may or may not have liked their departing manager. You may or may not have worked with them or know them at all.
Regardless of the situation, you have a great opportunity in front of you. Here are 10 tips to help you become a competent leader.
Teamwork is critical for the true success of everything we do. Think about it, every venture we undertake requires help from someone; that’s the way it’s supposed to go.
If we rely on others for our success, others rely on us for theirs. How can we help others most effectively? What do we need to become great team players?

The Law of Attraction, like many other laws is a law of the universe.
The Law of Attraction (LOA) states that a person attracts situations that are aligned to his/her vibrations. This law is based on metaphysical concepts, but practically, it simply means the following:
- What you like has an effect on whatever happens to you
- What you think about has an effect on whatever happens to you
In short, it predominantly works on the emotions.
The most successful companies have motivated leaders, and those leaders inspire motivation at all levels of the organization.
