Are you a manager or a leader? There are many differences between the two, but the most dominant one is that leaders have people following them, while managers have people working for them. Leaders can influence people to believe in themselves and motivate them to take initiative and ownership, can work in an unstructured environment and are more long-term focussed. Managers focus on execution, delegation and control, aiming at making employees as efficient as possible. Management skills are easier to learn, although, people who are used to structuring their work, will find this easier.
