Managers and leaders


Management and leadership are two different concepts. They are sometimes used interchangeably. Not all managers are leaders and not all leaders have management skills. Managers are not expected to be visionaries whereas leaders generally are. Managers forecast future implications based on evidence, whereas leaders have a vision and will lead their organization towards it. Some people are natural leaders and others need a lot of encouragement and motivation. Motivation is a key factor in preparing future leaders and a skill that is common to both managers and leaders. Without motivation, there can be no leaders or managers.
