Motivating and inspiring others
Leadership involves creating a compelling vision of the future, communicating that vision, and helping people understand and commit to it.
Managers, on the other hand, are responsible for ensuring that the vision is implemented efficiently and successfully.

One size does not fit all. Some individuals are highly self-motivated, while others will under-perform without managerial input, and you need to be able to handle both.
Teams are made up of individuals who have different outlooks and abilities, and are at different stages of their careers. Some may be challenged by the tasks you assign and need help while others may be unchallenged, and may be looking for opportunities to stretch their skills.
