The secret to becoming a better manager
Entrepreneur
Not all managers are cut from the same cloth, but the best ones have the ability to coach their employees to contribute meaningfully to the business and achieve personal satisfaction. Unfortunately, too many managers fail on both accounts, often because they haven't received proper training themselves. Learning how to unleash the potential of individual employees and teams is what separates the middle-of-the pack managers from the great ones.

6 solid reasons the best leaders are also the best managers
Forbes
Beyond the more obvious leadership attributes, beyond the strategic thinking, the vision, the ability to spellbind an audience and inspire, the most effective leaders tend to share some more prosaic qualities. They have an unspectacular but solid foundation that informs all aspects of their working lives and makes others want to follow them.

How do you define success?
By C. Fredrick Crum
When I ask leaders, "How do you define success?" I often get asked, "Are you referring to my professional life, personal life or for this organization?"

If you want to be successful, welcome obstacles
Forbes
The people who succeed do more than the other guy. Sure, you can point to examples of people who really got lucky — they chose the right parents and inherited wealth or position or maybe they won some sort of lottery (genetic or actual) — but you never want to have to rely on pure luck for success. And so that means if you want to stand out from the pack, you need to welcome obstacles so you can overcome them.

If you want to lead, you also need to manage
Entrepreneur
All executives must own their own piece of the puzzle and be autonomous enough to succeed in the roles for which they were hired. But it is important to remember the special responsibility those at the top bear. If you are a company founder, you need to also be a manager of people — of all levels of the organizational chart — in addition to working on strategy. If you are an aggressive middle manager who wants to move up, you have to understand that every rung you step on as you move up brings not only more authority, but more responsibility.
