"Average managers play checkers, while leaders play chess. The difference? In checkers, all the pieces are uniform and move in the same way; they are interchangeable. You need to plan and coordinate their movements, certainly, but they all move at the same pace, on parallel paths. In chess, each type of piece moves in a different way, and you can’t play if you don’t know how each piece moves. More important, you won’t win if you don’t think carefully about how you move the pieces. Leaders know and value the unique abilities and even the eccentricities of their employees, and they learn how best to integrate them into a coordinated plan of attack."
