This is the most debated topic in management research today, and yet there has not been any clarity in arriving at a conceptual distinction between these two styles at increasing number of organizations. Often organizations struggle to understand whether a given problem is to be handled by a Manager or a Leader, further so, there are situations wherein while establishing jobs to handle a group or team of people the recruiting authority is unsure about the nature of control to be exerted i.e. whether the recruited person should have management skills alone or leadership skills alone or is it a combination of both.
