Sam Shriver, Senior Vice President at The Center for Leadership Studies: Anytime you take a look at leadership, the only time it comes into play is when it's under this umbrella of change. Leadership is a mechanism that allows change to happen.
If you're talking about keeping things the way they are, that's more of a management thing. We know where we're going, we know what it looks like. My job is to make sure that you execute according to plan.
Warren Bennis said managers are the kind of people that say, "Are we doing things right?" Leaders are the kind of people that are saying, "Are we doing the right things?"
We're going somewhere. We're on this expedition, this journey. Not only have we never been there before, nobody has. We don't know, exactly, what it's going to look like, but come follow me anyway.
