When we think about what a leader and manager is, most of us will use the same meaning. But in actual fact this is incorrect. We have to look at these two terms differently. What is a manager?

Tilton does express the traits of being a good leader. She shows task competence because she has been able to turn so many of the companies around and make a huge profit.

As a growing debate, the question at hand is whether great leaders are born with specific leadership traits, or if one can be taught certain traits over time.

Most of the time their background is in the clinical side. To them the
