Are you a Director, Manager or Doer?
Do you get confused over the distinction between ‘doing’ the job, ‘managing’, and ‘directing’? Here are some distinctions:
Doing: Carrying out a deed or action, especially when held responsible for it.
Managing: Getting people together to accomplish goals through interpersonal relations, information processing and decision making.
Directing: Setting direction, establishing policies, controlling resources and overseeing the activities of an organisation.
In a small business, you may sometimes have to carry out all three functions yourself!
