I love metrics. A number of my colleagues will certainly attest to that. Metrics are presented in many forms: cash flow statements and projections, balance sheets, income statements, graphs, charts, stats etc.

However, what I love more than metrics, is people. It is important for a leader to recognise that leadership is not fundamentally about metrics, it is about people first and foremost. Managing, on the other hand, is about metrics.

In essence: Managers Measure Metrics, Leaders Lift Lives.
