1.1 Leadership Is The Soul Of The Organization:
It is not just a word rather leadership is a process of social influence of one person on others to aid and to support their role in order to achieve the combined purpose. Leadership is thus not a role or a position, but an act of achieving the tasks assigned. So being a leader is an adventure because the whole situation of success and failure surrounds the leader’s role.
It is rightly said that if you are the driving force or the source of inspiration for others, if you are the ladder to the top destination then you are the leader.
If you are the source for others to flourish, you are an inspiring leader.
To command the great things is not at all an easy task. Leadership is an art to mould others according to your own plans and way of scheming.
A leader’s role is much different, challenging and influential than a managing role. Leadership is basically the soul of the organization, the outcome of the leadership wills exactly matches to the objective of the organization provided by the leader. The soul is the mirror image of the ones personality. Being the leader is the translator of the objectives of the organization.
Leader as a Guide Source:
It is said that a manager is one who does the right things but a leader is one who does the things rightly.
The role of leader is same as someone is taking the responsibility of “carrying the flag” to command to the destination. Leadership is basically the way for others to reach the overall goal. Leader is responsible for the supervision and the guidance for the subordinates. Its role is just like an efficient input from where the effective output is to be generated. Leader has 'a point of view’, a guide line to be followed, they challenge the unexpected future challenges. They adapt never adopt that’s the admirable and demanding quality of a leader.
Impacts and Significance of Leadership:
Effective leadership is an art and it is a personal role that needs the combination of motivational, strategic and challenging skills to strengthen the focus, energy and creating a culture that encourages individuals thinking and achievement. Leadership is about persuading ideas and thoughts, assigning responsibility and unlocking hidden potentials and cravings to bring out the best output of others.
Employees as a Resource:
The employees are the resource of any organization. They are the key to success. They are basically the building block of an organization. The role of leadership is measured or assessed by the working excellence of the employees. That’s why basically the leader and the employees go hand in hand for the achievement of the desired goals. Both are interdependent and complimentary for each other.
To be successfully achieved the desired outcomes should be the main behavior of the employees...
