Leadership a Choice not a Gift
Leadership is the process of handling, controlling and leading the people or followers in order to achieve some common goals (Brandt & Laiho, 2013). The effective leadership in business is necessary for the growth and development of business. With the help of the leadership, the organizational capabilities are transforming to the organizational goals and abilities. There are number of the traits and leadership style a leader possesses (Cheung & Wong, 2011). However, the main power of the leader is the situational leadership. The transformational leadership style is necessary for the success of the business. This leadership style has potential to converts the capabilities into expertise and serves the employee or the workforce and also plays an important role in change management (Deinert, Astrid C. Homan b, Homan, Boer, Voelpel, & Gutermanna, 2015).
The leaders have the qualities by birth. The institutions, coaches and environment just polish and enhance those traits and qualities of the person (Ghasabeh, Soosay, & Reaiche, 2015). Visionary leader always keep an eye on the variables of the market. The same thing happens in success of Warren Buffet when he achieved an excellent opportunity to make the investment in New England Textile Company (Guay, 2013).
Every person is unique; therefore every leader must be unique as well. There are many types of leadership styles that have been studied; if you have two different persons implementing the same style of leadership you will still have some differences due to their unique human qualities and experiences (Kirkbride, 2006). The way you were raised, your genetics, the culture around you, the obstacles that you were able to overcome give you these unique characteristics. Each style of leadership ultimately arose from studies of the behavior of people that hold leadership positions (Parolini, Patterson, & Winston, 2009). Long before modern leadership theories were written, leadership had existed way before the birth of Christ.
There are many factors that play in order to be a good leader. According to Transformational Leadership Theory (TLT), the motivation and enthusiasm are the two most important characteristics that describe the qualities of leaders in an organization (Stone, Russell, & Patterson, 2004). Transformational Leadership Theory is based on the ‘vision,’ which is self-acquired or sometimes has also been associated as the personal attribute of the leaders. The leaders then inject the prospect of this vision into others to provide motivation and enthusiasm (Ghasabeh et al., 2015). I can honestly say leading is no for everyone as your actions might affect others in many ways.
