Leadership is a facet of management. It is just one of the many assets a successful manager must possess. The main aim of a manager is to maximize the output of the organization through administrative implementation. To achieve this managers must undertake the four functions of management: planning, organization, leading and controlling. In some cases leadership is just one important component of the leading function. Predpall (1994) said, "Leaders must let vision, strategies, goals, and values be the guide-post for action and behavior rather than attempting to control others". In some circumstances, leadership is not required. For example, self-motivated groups may not require a single leader and may find leaders dominating. The fact that a leader is not always required proves that leadership is just an asset and is not essential.
In addition, leadership itself can be described in various forms and through the highlight of different skill sets, but the one thing that all definitions have in common is that “leadership involves influencing the attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and feelings of other people” Spector’s work (as cited in Curtis, de Vries, & Sheerin, 2011, p.306). When the skill set of a leader is compared to that of a manager, true differences are noted. Some of these key differences are apparent even in the approach utilized to reach the desired goals. While a manager directs, a leader transforms, a manager sustains and a leader improves, a manager controls, a leader motivates, a manager’s focus is on short-term goals and a leader’s is long-term based, managers ask how and when, while

Culture within organizations is important as it plays an enormous role on whether employees are in happy and safe environments and can perform at the full capacity. Strong cultures are based on two characteristics, high levels of agreement among employees about what’s a valued and high level of intensity about these values CITATION Cha03 \l 1033 (Chatman & Cha, 2003). Although it seemed as if it had a great culture
A manager is a person who supervises the work of others so that the assigned goals and targets are achieved in the most effective, efficient, and well-organized fashion (Daft 2011). A manager makes decisions for his organization, organizes, motivates, and leads its human resource, and controls its business affairs so as to achieve efficiency and superior operational performance. All the functions and responsibilities of a manager overlap each other at all the managerial levels within an organization (Basefsky, Maxwell, Post, & Turner 2004). Leadership is one of the core functions of a manager. This leadership function essentially requires the leader to be specialized in all other management functions in order to lead his followers effectively and efficiently (Leatherman 2008). Therefore, it is strongly believed that a person must have to be a good manager in order to become an effective leader. This paper critically examines this statement in the light of relevant literature; including books, research papers, and journal articles.
The types of leaders in any institution include autocratic leaders, democratic leaders and laissez faire leaders. Autocratic leaders do not allow for suggestions from employees while making certain decisions but democratic leaders value the opinions and ideas of employees. Laisses faire leaders on the other hand allow employees to make decisions on their own. Change management theory is also very important in guiding the research in the management field. This theory suggests that for change to be embraced in any institution, the people have to be involved and not forced to flow with the change (Miller & Tsang 2011).. People should be therefore given time to adapt to the changes, otherwise if they are forced, the change may take a long time in order to be fully implemented in the organization. These theories will create my theoretical framework for the study. They are very important especially when conducting a research based on management of an organization. Management, leadership and change are key aspects that affect the performance of an organization and they should be taken into account when conducting the

Until a few decades ago, it was a commonly prevalent notion in the corporate sector that organizations are operated by capital and top leadership where as the employees are to follow the lead as they are told to. This meant that employees were simply expected to walk on the line given to them to attain the desired results without giving much of their own input. Under such circumstances, leaders were defined as commanders and controllers and were assumed to be people who held certain authority and position in the organizations, while the rest of the employees were treated as mere subordinates, whose only motivation was considered to be financial incentives.
