Is there really a difference between management and leadership? Well, yes, there is!
In most cases, managers use their specific technical skills, knowledge, and expertise to achieve set objectives. The primary role of leaders is to influence and inspire people. Of course, both functions are crucial, and sometimes, a person must act as both a manager and leader. To explain further, here are some key differences between each of the roles:
Leaders Set the Vision, Managers Follow It

Leaders Look in the Future, Managers Work In the Present
