An introduction to coaching courseThere is some confusion between the two so here are some top tips on distinguishing between a manager and a leader:-

Managing is about:-

  • Making plans and sorting out details
  • Setting up a structure so the plans can be met
  • Monitoring progress against those plan
  • Producing the results others are expecting

Leadership is about-:

  • Developing a vision for the future and where we want to be
  • Getting people on board and giving them direction
  • Motivating , inspiring and energising people
  • Producing change
