The Leaders' biggest problems
The biggest mistakes business leaders make are not communicating, failing to provide feedback and just not listening to their workforce, new research has suggested.

Why don't they do these? And how do they become leaders if they never did these in the past?
The answer I believe is the difference between being a great manager and being a great leader.
As Marcus Buckingham notes, great management is finding what is unique about your team members and playing to their strengths. So for a consistently great manager the discipline he or she builds is one of focussing on the individuals.
The competency however fails when the manager becomes the leader, because from focussing on uniqueness, the leader has to focus on the universal. The common thread that energizes and takes along evrybody.
