Leadership can be described as the process of social influence, which maximizes the efforts of others towards the achievement of a goal. This definition considers a number of elements that are regarded as crucial to the understanding of what leadership is.
Leadership must emanate from social influence and does not stand on power or authority. It must involve the interaction with others who are not only persons who report directly to the leader. Leadership in this definition does not rest on titles, personality traits, or attributes but acknowledges that there are many styles and paths to leadership.
Finally, leadership by this definition includes goals, implying that influence must be directed at achieving an outcome that is intended.
This concept of leadership also embodies visions and goals that leaders articulate and which enable other persons to share and achieve these visions and goals.
Leadership is also described as a state of mind and is the ability to use spirit, vision and character to get people from different backgrounds to work together as a team. Six key traits set leaders apart from other persons. These are:
• Desire to lead
• Self Confidence
• Job relevant knowledge
Drive: Leaders with drive show a high level of effort. These individuals possess a strong desire for achievement. These persons also possess high energy, demonstrate initiative, and they are also filled with determination and persistence to achieve in whatever they do.
Leadership demands that persons who aspire to lead are those who possess the determination and focus to achieve their objectives. Drive is an important characteristic for leaders who must demonstrate their overall competence and commitment.
Desire to lead: Leaders are expected to demonstrate a powerful desire to exert influence and direction to others. These individuals also demonstrate a willingness to assume responsibility for their actions as well as those of the people they lead. A desire to lead should be borne out of a genuine concern for the condition of others and not motivated by selfish aims for power and influence.
Integrity: Leaders are expected to cultivate relationships of trust between themselves and their followers. This must be based on truthfulness and the demonstrated consistency between his words and actions. Importantly integrity in leadership must be demonstrated at all times and not appear to be selective in how this is applied.
Self-Confidence: No follower feels confident with a leader who does not have confidence in his own abilities and character. Leaders must demonstrate a high level of self-confidence that convinces others of the soundness of the visions, goals and decisions that have been adopted. With a self-confident leader the confidence of the team being developed and led would also be enhanced.
Intelligence: This is a critical attribute for leaders as they are required to pull together, analyse and interpret significant volumes of information in their decision making and policy setting. Leaders are also expected to solve problems, create visions, and make the right decisions. Intelligence also extends to emotional intelligence which is also an important part of the arsenal of attributes that leaders must possess.
Job relevant knowledge: Leadership demands a sound knowledge of the company that leaders represent, the industry of which the company is a part, and knowledge of the technical areas as well. With extensive knowledge of the company and industry as well as technical expertise effective leaders are able to make well- informed decisions and understand the benefits and consequences of such decisions taken.
