Leadership Philosophy with Seth Godin – Very Much Agile!

There is a difference between management and leadership and Seth Godin nails it on the head.

“Practical everyday management. I’m not interested in that, leadership is not practical and it’s not everyday. Management and leadership are totally different things.”

“What is essential is leadership. Leadership is about finding the right people, agreeing where you want to go, and getting out of the way.”

“Leadership means, not knowing what is going to happen tomorrow, just knowing it’s going to take you where you want to go.”

“Do remarkable work that people can’t live without.”

“Do something scarier…”

“Say what you believe and see who follows.”
