Leadership is the ability of motivating, directing and guiding people to achieve a common goal. Leaders might, for example, be accountable for setting the strategic goals and issuing instructions to their team. They also provide support/guidance so that they can ensure tasks are finished on time.
Managers are those who have control of resources such as personnel and finances in order to meet specific objectives. A manager might be charged with budgeting, recruiting and managing the day-to-day operations of the organization.
Giving direction and coaching to other people is a way to give them guidance or help develop their skills. An example of this would be a leader who takes time out from their regular duties in order to mentor someone on their team – imparting strategies which have worked for them in the past as well as providing constructive feedback when needed.
