In my experience, I’ve seen firsthand how leaders and managers differ. Prior to my husband’s car accident in 2018 and becoming his caregiver, I worked in the staffing industry as an Executive Recruiter. I had the opportunity to work with both leaders and managers for the firm I worked for, as well as the clients and candidates I worked alongside with.

Working in corporate America, I found that most leaders oftentimes are visionary leaders. It seems as though they harness and exude a certain type of confident yet humble energy that managers do not seem to have. Leaders know how to forecast the future, as well navigate the direction of an organization. They also seem to have more of a charismatic personality which greatly influences and impacts their staff and draws people to them who are willing to see their vision come to fruition.

In my role as Executive Recruiter, I’ve met many leaders who were much nicer than their managers and a large portion of them never really cared what their title was. I even worked with a client who purposely did not have a title on his business card or on his LinkedIn profile. He explained to me that he did so many different things within the company, that he never felt the need to give himself a specific title.

Managers in most cases are not as seasoned as leaders and seem to be more “green” in the area of leadership. Managers manage people and processes and also seem to possess larger egos and are hung up on titles. It takes a strong leader to cultivate and mentor a manger while helping them transition into a leadership role.

People follow managers because they have to, but people follow leaders because they choose to.

The biggest difference between a leader and a manager is huge.

We all like to think we have natural leadership qualities, however leadership isn’t something you just ‘have’ – you need to work on improving your skills over time. So, what is the key difference between a manager and a leader?

The main difference between being a leader and a manager, is that people follow leaders, while managers have people who work for them. A lot of this comes down to three areas; motivation, vision and communication. Leaders tend to have charismatic personalities, are regularly positive and focused on ensuring the people around them understand the vision and embrace it. Managers have people around them who do the job for him or her, they pick the right people for the right job and manages them for the good of the company or cause. You can be both a manager and a leader, or one or the other. When you are in ‘management mode’ you are working towards the short term goals and objectives. When in ‘leadership mode’ you are envisioning a vision of the future, and laying out the groundwork of influencing others to join you in heading towards that future.


In my job I believe I am a leader because I take the initiative and have a vision on our children’s future I work on different ways to motivate my children and teach them to be independent and curious about the world around them, I also have teachers who are motivated by my motivation. We have a manager there who motivates and assigns which children we are to work with and what curriculum we should be following, I believe she falls into both the leadership and management role when needed.
