Manager vs. Leader Statements

Chapter 2a – Assignment

1. Accepts the Status Quo: If it ain’t broke don’t fix it

2. Approves: You did your job well and on time.

3. Assigns duties: I need you here at 8am sharp. Our customers depend on us being on time.

4. Breaks rules: What are we doing that holds people back?

5. Carves new road: If we keep going down the same road, we’ll only end up in the same place.

6. Challenges the status quo: I know it isn’t broken, but is there a way to do it that’s even better?

7. Charts new growth: Our goals are just a starting point. We are limited only by how far we want to reach. 

8. Does the right thing: I know what the rules say. But sometimes you just need to break them.

9. Does things right: Rules are rules. As much as I would like to, I can’t make an exception

10. Encourages people: If you think you’ve got a better way, my door is always open.

11. Establishes rules: Stick to the script. We can’t have everyone just running around doing their own thing. 

12. Eyes the bottom line: We got everything done and came in under budget

13. Eyes the horizon: We got everything done, came in under budget, and laid the groundwork for the next phase.

14. Follows the map: Our directions are very clear. Stick to them.

15. Fosters ideas: Customers tell me they love working with you. I’d like you to show some of the others how you do that.

16. Has objectives: Let’s stick to the plans so these get done ASAP

17. Has vision: I like your thinking. Let’s see how we can work this into our operation

18. Inspires trust: My workers know I trust them to be the best they can be.

19. Instructs employees: If you’re not sure of what your job entails, you can check the flowchart on my door

20. Meets expectations: We met our goals for the quarter, mission accomplished

21. Minimizes risks: Time is money. The sooner I get this done, the better

22. Motivates: You know, I’ve never had to worry about you doing your job- and doing it well.

23. Plans the details: I will send out a memo to everyone and set a time for us to meet

24. Relies on control: My workers know the consequences if they get out of line.

25. Sees a problem: Our plan didn’t work. I’ve got to fix it before I get blamed.

26. Sees an opportunity: Our plan didn’t work. Let’s put our heads together to see what we can learn from this.

27. Sells: I have this great idea, and I know it will work if I can get you to be part of it.

28. Sets the direction: Let’s get everyone together. I’ve got some exciting news you’ll all want to hear.

29. Takes risks: This might stretch us, but the payoff will make it worthwhile.

30. Tells: This is what I want you to do, and here is how I want you to do it
