Leadership and Management FAQs

What is the difference between leadership and management?

Though the roles are very similar and have many crossovers, there are still significant differences between leaders and managers. A leader’s main role is to lead a group of people toward a main goal whereas a manager will manage the team and hold responsibility for things such as budgets and equipment. Leaders will often have management responsibilities too, which are often judged to be the signs of a good leader. Managers can move into leadership and the two roles commonly work in unison.

Why is leadership and management important?

Leadership and management is important in the workplace because without them there would be no decision makers, no strategy for the direction the business is going in and no one would be responsible for the outcomes of the teams and departments. Leaders and Managers are not only essential to the smooth running of the business but are also good for morale of the team.

What is a manager?

A manager is often responsible for a team or department within the workplace. They often have a day-to-day relationship with their team and will be the decision maker. A manager’s role will vary depending on the type of workplace they are in but they are often responsible for budgets, the team they work in, the goals or outcomes of the team and much more.

What is a leader?

A leader is someone who has the vision to see how things can be improved and is able to lead a team on the journey to making that vision happen. A good leader will have a positive effect on the team working with them and is a source of motivation and drive to make things happen. Leaders are not only applicable in the workplace but in every day life such as Prime Ministers, parents and other prominent figures.
