'The only test of leadership is that somebody follows'.A leader has to be acceptedby the group which the former is suppose to lead . to gain empowerment , the leader should cause an emotive impact on the group members .Leadership is about inspiration—of oneself and of others. Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity thatcomes from the heart and considers the hearts of others.
'What does it take to be a leader ?' is a commonly asked question.Herewe are not political leaders but the people who were able to influencethe minds of thousands of people and bring a about difference in the society.Gandhi for instance was a man with a strong will power and with his determinationhe drove the Britishers out of our country !! Hitler had the power of speechwhen he spoke the world listened .Thus a strong will power and the power of speech enables the leader to develop habits essential to successfulleadership.We are all familiar with saying 'where there is a will there is a way'.an individual with iron will , will have the stamina to stick to his decisionsand tasks no matter what the odds maybe.
A character exhibited by leaders inspires followers to achieve worthwhile things.A leader needs to assume the role of a guide.The leader is the negotiator within and outside the organisation and he shapes people and moulds theircharacters.he has to mould his followers with his frame of mind. to achieve this the leader should maintain equanimity.Equanimity is keeping oneself poised and balanced all the time.
leaders are often mistaken as managers but there is a vast difference between the two . Managers are usually concerned with onlytechnical functions of the organisation whereas on the other hand leaderinspires and motivate to people to do there job even under pressurised circumstances.Leaders are the ones who vocalise their followers needs .
