Difference Between Being a Manager and a Leader

Throughout this list of roles, we’ll come across the terms manager and leader a lot. It might seem like these words have the same meaning but are simply spelt different but in the world of business there is distinction between the two.

A leader motivates their team to comprehend and execute the vision they’ve set for the company and works closely with the team on achieving those goals. They have certain qualities and traits  that separate them from the wider team. A manager is focused more on administering the work to individual team members and ensuring the day-to-day activities are getting done as they should.

Team Leader

In a business environment, a Team Leader provides guidance, instruction, direction and leadership to a group of individuals for the purpose of achieving key results or group of aligned results. They ensure their team has the right support to meet the targets and goals but above they themselves are organised, able to practice what they preach and lead from the front.
