This is so true…
Managers work to get their employees to do what they did yesterday, but a little faster and a little cheaper.
Leaders, on the other hand, know where they’d like to go, but understand that they can’t get there without their tribe, without giving those they lead the tools to make something happen.
Managers want authority. Leaders take responsibility.
We need both. But we have to be careful not to confuse them. And it helps to remember that leaders are scarce and thus more valuable.

A few months ago, I tried out doing a little series called “Friday’s Trick.” I decided to stop it when I relocated to work with Chick-fil-A at Perimeter Pointe. After looking at the traffic/visitor data of my blog, it was clear my most visited posts were either a “Friday’s Trick” or a more personal blog post about my life. The data doesn’t lie, so I am going to start the series back up again.
Today’s trick is a very simple tool used to send and receive faxes using only your computer. This is perfect for anyone that deals with contracts, nondisclosure agreements or any document along those lines.
I like Hellofax because it saves time. In a normal situation, you would need to print a contract, sign it or fill it out and then fax it back (hoping the fax number is right and that it goes through). Hellofax allows your to do all of this on your computer – edit the document, sign it using an uploaded signiture, and send/recieve faxes. Imagine never having to leave your desk to complete the paperwork.
