John Maeda on leading and managing and the need to do both.
The manager sets up the win with perfection for her team; the leader executes the win with passion.
The word “perfection” conveys discipline but the agile practitioner in me bridles at it. As John Maeda says, “a manager never manages alone.” Community defies perfection.
I do resolve to do better. Do by committing myself to action employing the most appropriate knowledge and tools at hand. Better by using the hard lessons of success and failure to make my actions more effective the next time.
