Leadership

A research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to "lead" or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations.

Understanding Leadership

Leadership is not about being the boss. It's not something that you can simply work your way up through promotions to achieve. True leadership is posessing the passion, dedication and charisma to capture audiences and make them follow you.

Possessing leadership can be a driving force for the betterment of all aspects of life. Colleagues, family, friends, and the like are all affected by leadership. Crafting your talent as a leader is critical in the success of your organization, and it is especially important to ensure the direction you are leading others in is safe, positive and progressive.

The Nature of Leadership

There’s usually a pecking order in the animal kingdom. There are queen bees, alpha gorillas, and male-female wolf pairs that dominate the pack. Humans are no different. This may come as a shock, but organizational constructs like tribes, societies, and companies are not the result of high-level intelligence but of primitive survival impulses reinforced by neurotransmitters in the brain’s ancient limbic system. To say that leadership and organizational behavior has been successful in the animal kingdom is a gross understatement. The planet is fully populated by millions of animal species that all exhibit the same sort of behavior. The point is, leadership is not so much a thought process as it is instinctive behavior. It’s evolutionary. It’s to a great extent responsible for our survival on earth. And that’s why we do it.
