The quality of the leadership can determine the success or failure of everything from a short project to a large corporation. From maximising productivity and efficiency to increasing motivation, good leadership can have a positive impact on all aspects of work.Leadership in an employment context is not necessarily about being the boss or the manager, adopting hierarchical responsibility for a team or project. It often refers to the behavioural competency of leading which involves working to an organisational strategy, taking responsibility, motivating others and taking action. Leaders identify opportunities, use their initiative and make decisions; they display a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, are reliable and are inspirational to other team members.
