What is Leadership
Leadership is the quality of individual to encourage the subordinates to work with confidence and enthusiasm. Motivational experts have to say that leaders are never born, leaders are made within. As a child we all were always been instructed by our parents for certain things saying you should not do this you should not do that. Later on the same things were been repeated in our school and colleges. We were been taught that we should follow instructions, become polite and humble to keep our corporate world smooth but nobody teaches us to become leader and self-reliant. Leaders are required to set a bright future vision for an organization which will encourage the other members of organization to work at. One of the renowned motivational speaker and also a former football player Keith Davis has said, “Leadership is the ability to persuade others to seek defined objectives enthusiastically. It is the human factor which binds a group together and motivates it towards goals”.
