song Description:

There is a story about management that I like because I think it contrasts management and leadership. There was a project team whose task it was to cut down a forest. The manager made sure the right people were on the team and that they had the right tools which were in tip-top shape. He made a schedule and assigned the team to work in shifts 24 hours since there was a hard deadline and limited resources. The team did very well because the work was so well managed. Two days in to the five day job, the leader arrived. She climbed a tree with her binoculars and compass. When she got to the top, she called for a stop to the work and yelled at the top of her voice, “Wrong forest!!”. https://mgtblog.com/what-is-management-by-design/
