Leaders and Managers

The way I would look at leadership is as a human- human hidden communication. Management is different. 

While the definition of manager in business dictionary is related mainly to their position and responsibilities the definition of leader in the same source is " Person or thing that holds a dominant or superior position within its field, and is able to exercise a high degree of control or influence over others" . leadership definition here is connected with knowledge and personal characteristics.

I would assume that a manger's responsibility is to manage, and managing people is one of these responsibilities.

Do these two positions clash? the question is valid when the two positions are practised by one person or by more than one.

What about this: "the integration can be a person who influences people in order to manage them effectively!"
