Hello!!I am back with another refreshing speech…I am sure that you have read it in the heading….Leadership!!
“Leadership is the quality of behavior of individuals whereby they guide people or their activities in organising efforts” — Chester I. Barnard
Leadership may be defined as a position of power held by an individual in a group, which provides him with an opportunity to exercise interpersonal influence on the group members for miobilising and directing their efforts towards certain goals. The leader is at the centre of group’s power structure, keeps the group together, infuses life into it, moves it towards its goals and maintains its momentum.
He may emerge in a group by virtue of his personality characteristics and qualities or by virtue of common consent by group members. In the latter case, the leader derives his power from the group members. He continues in the leadership position at the pleasure of group members collectively. Leadership position exists in most group settings irrespective of the size of the group.
For example, a leader of national or international standing commands widespread influence over a large number of people while the influence of the leader of a small work group in an organisation is very limited. Both are leaders in their own right and fulfill our definition of leadership.
Leadership is an influential process. The leader is in a position to shape, regulate, control and change the attitudes, behaviour and performance of his group members. The latter are supposed to comply with the former’s desires and directives and partially suspend their own judgment and discretion. There exists a particular relationship between the leader and his group members which is characterised by interpersonal and social interaction.
In a group, the leader and his followers play the roles expected of them and thereby seek to justify their respective positions. Some leaders may be able to play their role effectively whereby they succeed in getting the willing cooperation and commitment of their followers, beyond the normal call of duty.
In any group situation, the leader has a few bases of power by virtue of which he is in a position to influence the behaviour of group members. They are:
(i) Knowledge, information and experience
ii) Resources for dispensing favours, rewards and penalties
(iii) Formal authority
(v) Distinct personality characteristics like for example, will to dominate, ability to establish rapport, skill to communicate, identity with and understanding of people, decisiveness and soon.
Skillful use of these power bases by a leader is likely to bring success to him; and success in some cases adds to the power of the leader. A successful leader gains more credibility in the eyes of people; they often tend to ignore other deficiencies in him; they resolve to adhere to him and allow themselves to be further exposed to his influence attempts.
In this way some leaders entrench themselves in their positions. Some even misuse their power and often get away with it. Power carries with it an equal amount of responsibility. Leaders who relate their power with responsibility in a consistent manner are more successful in their influence than otherwise.
Importance of Leadership:
The following points highlight the importance of leadership:
(i) Effective direction:
An organisation comes into existence with certain objectives. To attain the objectives, the activities of the organisation must be directed. Direction of the activities is effected through leadership. In short, effective leadership directs the activities of an organisation towards the attainment of the specified organisational goals.
(ii) Source of motivation:
Leadership is the motivating power to group efforts. Effective leadership motivates the subordinates for higher productivity.
Leadership creates confidence in-the subordinates by giving proper guidance and advice.
(iv) High morale:
Good leadership increases the morale of the employees which, in turn, contributes to higher productivity.
(v) Development of team spirit:
Effective leadership promotes team-spirit and teamwork which is quite essential for the success of any organisation.
(vi) Encouraging initiative:
A progressive, forward and democratic minded leader, always encourages initiative on the part of the followers.
(vii) Overcoming resistance to change:
A leader overcomes resistance, if any on the part of followers to organisational changes; through explaining to them the utility of such changes to both—the enterprise and the employees.

Hello and welcome back to this blog!!!
What is the true success?
How to lead a successful life?
Why only few people are successful and most are not?
What is the secret formula to success?
These questions are hovering in the minds of millions. Everyone wants to become successful, gain name and fame.Nobody likes failure.some try hard to gain success but some think success is when we have luxurious house.cars etc……BUT that’s not success…….Success can never be earned we have to gain it………….
A 15 years old boy from New Delhi lost his father. When he reached 25 his mother passed away. His sister remained ill in depression and shock. But that boy didn’t concede desperation. He worked hard to support his family and remove all sorrow.
His hard work and determination made him the king of the Bollywood. He is the none other than Shahrukh Khan. He says ‘The only cure to remove sadness was to keep on working’.
If you go through the biographies of great actors like Tom Cruise or king of Pop Michael Jackson you will find that they have achieved the prosperity, dignity by overcoming a lot of challenges, struggles in their life.
To gain success you have to:-
1)Find your strength
2)Fight with the fear
3)By doing your work at time.Don’t delay it…..
“Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
THANK YOU AND TRY TO BE SUCCESSFUL!!!!!!

I went to a land of wonders,
thinking it would be joyful,
But there I saw raining and thunders,
and my eyes were tearful…..
When the rumble and showers stopped,
There appeared a band of colours
Suddenly it all popped,
I was sleeping soundly under my covers…….
