Dear All,
I am Anantha, working as an HR executive in an MNC.
I would like to add some more to the above topic apart from what adnan has described.
Manager may be task-oriented or people-oriented, but a leader will be both task and people oriented.
Leader thinkers and implementers both from brain and heart.
"Knowledge is power, Knowledge sharing is super power"

i dont really think a manager is different from a leader
a good manager has to be a good leader
and vice versa
think abt it....both may have some differences...theoretically..but they are eventually the same..practically ofcource i cant imagine one without the skills of the other
PS - i mean this by HR perspective...

Leader is someone who inspires and motivate others...manager is someone who is responsible for managing the available resourses..
Dear Vikram,

It is a common belief that management and leadership are the same role with different functions.

Many a times the manager plays the part of the leader, even though these two roles are truly separate in function and in a way they add to the success of any orginization.

While a Manager is to ensure that the given set of functions, people and machinery are working in tandem with the vision of the organisation, a leader makes sure that the path to achieve these corporate objectives and goals are going in the right direction

As a leader he or she should not be spending time in only managing people but should be making sure that they are provided with the correct perspective to be more effective in their respective roles.

A leader normally has a clear vision and is willing to take the front row while manager has a clear mission to ensure the leaders vision is completely supported to sphere head the process.

A leader never manages people but inspires and lead them.
