Managers and leaders differ in how they create an agenda to develop a rationale for achieving the agenda and execute plans and in the types of outcomes they achieve. A manager must have the qualities of leadership for fulfilling the goals of the organization. A manager manages all works of an organization to fulfill the goals of that organization. It is necessary for a manager to also have the quality of leads. Otherwise, he cannot lead his subordinates.
Good management aims to provide services to the community in an appropriate, efficient, equitable, and sustainable manner.
This can only be achieved if key resources for service provision, including human resources, finances, hardware and process aspects of care delivery are brought together at the point of service delivery and are carefully synchronized.
Critical management considerations for assessment and planning, managing the care process, human resources, interacting with the community, and managing information is covered in the Planning, Human Resources, Integration and Monitoring chapters.
A manager’s responsibility is to bring about, to accomplish, and to have charge of or responsibility for and to conduct.
Mainly we can say that a manager manages all the works of an organization to fulfill the goals of that organization. The leader also needs to lead his subordinates on the right path. He needs to bear both qualities that are managing and leading.
On the other hand leading is influencing, guiding in a direction, course, action, opinion. A leader can only lead the subordinates but cannot manage everything to accomplish the goals.
His responsibility is to only give guidelines to his subordinates and to motivate them to do the work properly but not manage.
Though there is a relationship between a manager and a leader, it is necessary for a manager to also have the quality of leads.
Otherwise, he cannot lead his subordinates.
But a leader doesn’t need to manage the whole works; he only needs to influence the subordinates as the direction of the manager.
The leader only leads his subordinates but a manager needs to manage everything as well as to lead them.
The answer lies in the quote itself.
When you talk about ‘Manager’, we are essentially talking about ‘Role of managing’ things for himself (be it his project, job; function, etc.)
But the ‘Leaders’ are those who ‘make others manage’ things.
There is a clear distinction between these two roles.
Therefore a good leader is always a good manager but a good manager may not be the same as always.
But there are clear distinctions between these two roles;
The manager drives the person, the leader coaches them;
The manager knows how it is done, the leader shows how;
The manager is concerned with things; the leader is concerned with people;
The leader commands respect where a manager demands respect;
The manager takes the credit, the leader gives it.
There is a profound difference between management and leadership, and both are important.
The distinction is crucial.
However ‘A manager is a leader but a leader may not always be a manager’.
When we understand and discuss the differences between the manager and leader we can realize that.
Leaders are Born but Managers are Made. Leaders have an intangible characteristic that can’t be explained but the manager can train his or her skill by training.
Leaders have qualities that distinguish them from a manager. Managers are creative and stewards of functional tasks.
A manager is an individual charged with the responsibility of overseeing’ resources and processes.’
Managers are more creative than supervisors, in most instances, but they are also stewards of functional tasks. Their sole duty is to manage.
Manage budgets, people, major tasks and projects, and time.
All of which are functional tasks, tasks which we are all accustomed to performing in our personal lives daily.
A leader is ‘a person who rules, or guides or inspires others.’ A leader is someone others are willing to follow, almost without question.
They may not always make the right decision, but they are confident in the decisions that they make. They are not afraid to admit when they are wrong, and they know when to change direction when an inappropriate choice has been made.
For, even after a few mistakes, a true leader will not lose the confidence of his, or her, followers.
People seek out leaders unconsciously, and leaders step to the forefront almost instinctively. Leaders are recognized, not chosen.
Leaders have some extra qualities that distinguish the leader from the manager.
The leaders are the origin of the idea and their task is conceptual.
The qualities of a leader are given below:
Leaders can influence people easily.
