While I do believe managers and leaders have their own roles within an organization, I also believe managers are leaders. In the organization where I work, there are some obvious differences between the two roles where managers have a greater scope regarding the day to day operations and the leaders are more involved on the floor and within the team collaborating, striving for success. There are two notable managers within our team that are both leaders. They are both inspiring, encouraging and very knowledgeable. They are always communicating with the team and supporting when they can. They are not the typical managers that I am used to and I am thankful to be working alongside them.
