Leadership in organisations

One of the most important set of skills required in a changing world are the skills of leadership. In the emerging view of leadership in the new economy, leaders are not 'bosses' or 'commanders'; rather leaders are people committed to 'creating a world in which people want to belong'. Rather than 'power'; true leadership is a result of influence, congruence and integrity.  It involves managing relationships and interacting and communicating within an organisation, network or social system to move towards a vision of a rewarding future. From this perspective leadership can be definedas the capability to 'express a vision, influence others to achieve results , encourage team cooperation and be an example

The importance of leaders in organsation today

As we move through the 21st Century leaders are being faced with siuations never seen before. This calls for a change in leadership.

'Leadership' is often contrasted with management. Management is typically defined as 'getting things done through others'. In comparison, leadership is defined as, 'getting others to want to do things'. Management is usually associated with improving productivity, establishing order and making things runs smoothly. Leadership is required in times of turbulance, social transformation and change.

In fact the words 'leading' and 'leadership' come from the Old English word 'lithan' meaning 'to go'.  Thus leadership is about 'going first' and influencing others as much by one's actions as by one's words.
