Etymology

to manage

The English verb "manage" comes from the Italian maneggiare (to handle, especially tools), which derives from the two Latin words manus (hand) and agere (to act). "To manage" means "to bring about, to accomplish, to have charge of or responsibility for, to conduct."

to lead

The English verb "to lead" comes from Middle English leden, from Old English lǣdan;(cause to go with one, lead, guide, conduct, carry; sprout forth; bring forth) akin to Old High German leiten (to lead), Old English līthan (to go) "Leading" is "influencing, guiding in direction, course, action, opinion."
