Can a good manager also be a good leader? Should a leader be a strong manager? How do managers and leader differ?
The key difference between leaders and managers is leaders manage people while managers manage processes.
A successful business owner, manager or anyone responsible for leading a team needs both to be a strong leader and manager to get their team engaged in a vision that will render a successful outcome. Leadership is about getting others to understand and believe in a vision and to work to achieve goals while managing is more about administering and making sure the day-to-day things are happening as they should for the benefit of the vision.
