Leader or Manager

As a Leader or a Manager we make decisions based on all of the available information at the time and the impact to stakeholders.

I'm going to over simplify the difference between a Leader and a Manager by observing a single aspect in the decision making process.
Managers make decisions based on the direction of a superior.
Leaders make decisions based on what why believe is best for their team.
I have held both roles in my career. The tricky part is knowing when to be one over the other...yes there are times for both.
