Leadership is based on the ability of an individual to get one or more people to work together and let them function efficiently and effectively as a team, being motivated to perform tasks and activities in order to achieve set objectives. Managers must take responsibility to act as leaders in the organisation by communicating to and motivating employees to behave in an expected manner in order to achieve the set objectives. To get employees to behave in an expected manner will be influenced greatly by the example set by the leader. This example needs to be more than general example – it must be inspiring. Leadership also involves creating a vision of the organisation’s future as well as the strategy to achieve the vision for the followers/employees. Leadership involves influencing others to strive to achieve one or more goals.
