Leadership how this varies from management, is that a leader can be put into 3 catorgies, having authority , being demorcatic and laissez-faire, by having authority you are quickly dealing with all objectives straight away whether this be staff issues or policy makig decisions , this style of leadership and management is only to keepcontrol , I have worked under this style of management and I feel that this does not always work as staff feel overlooked, ignored and by this happening this caused conflict within the team and left staff feeling worthless and having no respect for the manager .
