People Managers worry about the people, the culture, the team, the what and the how of what they are delivering.

Process Managers worry about how and when of what they are delivering, the methodology, the steps and the outcome.

We are all one or the other, depending on the project sometimes we are both sometimes we flip between projects on which one we must be.

But we are all predisposed to leaning to one side or the other.

There is nothing wrong with either – the key is knowing which one you are and assembling a team that lines up to where you want to go.  A People Manager will struggle with a team built around Process and vice-versa.

Know who you are and what you need to assemble to become a success.
