Thank you sir for your appreciation and Question...

Leader. Leadership. One of these might be the first word that comes to mind when someone asks themselves...
Manager.That word might or might not be part of any individual person that is a manager.....
Some may think that a Manager and a Leader are the same, but they are not necessarily identical. An effective manager will have leadership qualities and "manager" will be only one facet of a "LEADER."

Leaders do the right things.They have followers.Their main focus is to lead people with passion.They direct people in to new roads.
Managers do things right.They have subordinates.Their main focus is to manage work.
They direct people in to existing roads....

 A Manager in business terms ensures tasks are done through others.
A Leader in practical terms motivates others to do the task.
A Manager who can not motivate others to a certain task is not a Leader...
No difference but it is the combination of both which move things forward.

Thank you Mr.Rezwan

There are few relationship between Management and Administration but differences are many..but i will research about this and write up to you...

How should the management treat the admin people?

If management is Poor then people will not better in there work place.....
Most experience a workplace sometime in their career where the reflection of poor management prevents the organization and employees from reaching optimum production Poor management minimizes the level..There are so many programs and organizations out there that help in providing proper management. The reason for this is that many companies are looking for ways to manage properly.They are not well treated even...because of they are poor section of management.............
