Leaders affect the general organizational performance and this can either be in a positive or negative manner. This is attributed to the fact that they are the ones whom in most cases set up the general guidelines that determine the conduct of their subjects. It is through these guidelines that they are able to effect change in their organizations. The process of decision making adopted by the leaders is therefore a vital determinant to how far the progress of a given organization will take place. The antidote to organizational problems is how to replace a leader when he leaves as the one opted for may not have the qualification desired and leadership values expected of that position. This is because when a new leader is appointed into position it is hoped that he will be able to reverse the situation that was there initially.

This is because their knowledge of a given field is what makes a leader be successful in his position. The search for good leaders in an organization has been an ongoing process in institutions. The talent, skills and the physical characteristics possessed by an individual are a critical determinant to the level of success he is likely to bring about in the organization. It is through the possession of such traits that an individual is able to rise to the ladder of leadership. It should be noted that leadership and management go together and the success of one depends on how effective they work together.
