Today, leaders are operating in the toughest business environment, where
margins are tight and decisions need to be made quickly. Great leaders
demonstrate their business ethics and culture in their everyday work. A key
example of great leadership can be seen in the Ford Motor Company. The
organization has transformed from a struggling company to the most admired
automaker under the leadership of Alan Morally, the CEO. One leader that
business owners across the world look up to is Steve Jobs, the co-founder and
former CEO of Apple. Everyone at Apple, from the top to the bottom, focused on
producing easy to use, well-designed products used as means of entertainment or
tools of productivity under the leadership of Steve Jobs.
What these examples go to show is that it is the quality of leadership that
determines the fate of an organization. A great leader motivates his people to
give their best, he guides them in the right direction to achieve the goals and
vision of the business. Here are some other reasons why you need great
leadership skills in today’s business environment.
Why Great Leadership?
Overall, a great leader helps the organization build harmony around common
objectives and goals of the organization, improve collaboration between
colleagues and team members and achieve greater success.
"A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where
they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be." ~ Rosalynn Carter
