a dedication to the IT managers out there

This isn't a good example of leadership, but would you fire your boss if in a position to do so?

And a short explanation (from the above sources) of leadership versus management:

Management is telling people what to do, which is a vital part of any industrial economy. Leadership is figuring out what ought to be done then getting people to do it, which is very different.

(PS. I guess I would have done it at least one time with the respectfully kick in the backside :-)
