How to difference a leader from a manager

A company needs different persons to handle various tasks and it is important to difference which ones should be done and assign a position to it, such as supervisor or manager.

The names of each position are directly attached to the power each person will have within the company, and of course, the responsibilities, for this reason we will go through the differences between a leader and a manger within a company.

A leader can accomplish all those tasks that none of the persons on any other positions can, as the own unique qualities that help them preventing being classified or molded as a manager or supervisor.

“A manager oversees what his subordinates do, he is in charge of delegating responsibilities and making sure they are done, as well as designating the tasks to be done every day and make sure to get results from them”, was the opinion of Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

A leader, on the other side, tries not to have people below them, instead of that, they have people behind them, and those workers who follow a true leader are usually inspired by him or her, which is an important difference between a leader and a manager.

A manager seeks for the best way to reach the company’s goals, so their thoughts are focused to an end and they try to stick to a system, that is no wrong at all, but opposite to what the leader do, it is not too open to expansion or advancement.

“A manager does a great job by making his thing work in a company, while a leader goes further by innovate constantly and keep on looking on new ideas to expand businesses, both are great at their job and are valuable for a company, and each one has different positive attributes that contribute a company to grow up”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
