Leadership is the artistic ability to influence others to willingly contribute their time, talents and relevant resources towards achieving a common goal for all. What differentiates a leader from a manager is that the latter focuses on getting things done effectively (transactional) while the former demonstrates behaviours that go beyond being transactional to develop and transform people.
As leadership is behavioural-based, it can be developed at all levels of the organisation, albeit with different areas of focus and emphasis.
Research has shown that the foundation to effective leadership is credibility. Simply, leaders must be trustworthy in the eyes of their constituents.
