Within this article the author will examine the two important and distinct roles of both manager and leader. Often, out of necessity, these two roles are performed by the same individual, but this however is not always ideal or practical. Therefore as a manager it is vital to recognise the focus of your role and to support and develop those staff within your department who can and are already fulfilling their leadership potential. This article will start by demonstrating the differences between a leader and a manager. Change management will be discussed before finishing with how the manager can support and develop their own staff to become successful leaders, thereby allowing the manager to concentrate upon the vital job of managing.
