During my morning web exploration I came upon this post by Julie Zhuo: A Manager's Manifesto. Julie is a product design director at Facebook, where she manages a group of designers.
While I agree with Julie's points, numbers 8 and 1 resonated with me the most.
The only thing I don't agree with is the term "manager" because it has somewhat of a negative connotation in my mind.
I am striving to be a leader, versus being a manager. And I think Julie's content is reflective of good leadership, not management.
How would you describe the difference between a leader and a manager?
