Leading and managing go together but some differences exist between the two. The following are the differences between the leadership and the management:

  • Management takes rational and logical decisions while leadership takes decision on expectations of the followers. Leadership has an emotional appeal while management acts on rationality.
  • The management establishes relationship through a lawful authority while leadership establishes relationship through power.
  • Managers have formal authority but the leaders have no such authority.
  • All leaders are not managers and all managers are leaders.
  • Management is a process of planning, organizing, directing and controlling the activities of others to attain the organizational objectives. Leadership on the other hand, is a process of influencing the behavior of the people to attain their assigned tasks. A successful manager must possess both the managerial and leadership qualities.
