On other hand, I have worked for leaders who were great administrators but poor leaders, and they were ultimately failures. Simply put: administration may be a necessary condition, but it is not a sufficient condition, for success; whereas, leadership may be a necessary and sufficient condition for success.
My core premise is that if you are to be a successful work leader, your success will be determined not by how great an administrator you are, but how great a leader you are day-in-and-day-out. When staff you are in charge of believes that you are a great leader, and when you are doing seven essential steps, you will be a peak-performance leader who tastes joy of success.

Each letter represents essence of a key principle for Peak Performance. L: Love Friends Like but Leaders Love E: Expectations Setting Bar Sets Tone A: Assignment Square Pegs in Round Holes Never Fit! D: Development The Good Get Better, Best Excel E: Evaluation Leaders Success by Making Judgments R: Rewards An Organization Elicits Behavior It Rewards S: Self Work Leaders Must Lead Themselves For more information: www.deltennium.com/articles.php
