    Study the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below:
    Leadership is one of the critical elements in every organizational setup. However, Leadership and management are two different terms which are often assumed to mean the same thing, but they are different. Managing cannot be equated to leading. Managing involves dealing with complexity while leading involves dealing with change. Leadership involves setting direction and coming up with strategic plans on how to bring about positive change and growth in the organization while management involves coming up with steps to be followed and setting time limits for certain activities to be accomplished. Leaders portray a passionate attitude towards achieving the organizationÂ’'s vision and the set goals while managers may have an impersonal attitude towards the set goals and visions. Leading a team will be affected positively by a leader other than a manager. This is because a leader is compelled by emotions and ensures the growth of the subordinates by motivating them to overcome challenges.
