Leader  means “Organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal”. A Leader is a person who influences a group of people towards a specific and common result. An organization that is established as an instrument or means for achieving defines objectives. Leaders are recognized by their capacity to care for other, clear and true communication with his members and a commitment to persist. The use of positive reinforcement is a successful and growing techniques used by a leader to motivates and attain the desired behavior from the members of that group.

                        According to Shri Nelson Mandela – “It is better to lead from behind and to put the others in front, especially when you celebrate victory, when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.The supreme quality for leader should be unquestionably, honesty, faith and acceptability in the Organization and its members, without it no real success is possible. Leadership comes from integrity as you do whatever you ask and wants to others to do so. Leadership does not need to be a dramatics.

                         A critical element of leader’s effectiveness is choosing the right type of style, at the right time, in the right situation. Leader should not be act as dictator. He should not propose his ideas to the others vehemently.  It is the duty of the leader not to give hope to his members and the organization for those things which are not covered under any rule and orders. Effective leaders realize early in their life that they must continuously improve their communication skills. Failure to do so means you can never never execute  on complex leadership on success models.

                        In its essence, leadership in an Organizational role involving :-

1.      establishing to clear vision
2.      sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly
3.      providing the information, knowledge and method to realize that vision
4.      co-ordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members

A leader should be a good orator and a good listener too. He should come to the forefront in case of crisis and able to think and act in creative ways in different peculiar situations. Main task of an ideal leader is to devote himself for his Organization and the members who elected him to lead. A Leader is someone who brings people together.

If a Leader do not know where he is going, his entire Organization looks like a rudderless boat and every road will be get him nowhere. As you know that a single lie destroy the whole reputation of a Leader. Any misapprehension of the general opinion will not be convertible in the good harvest for a leader. So, he should be willing to make decision, which is the most important and for welfare of his Organization.

In my opinion, the first responsibility of a Leader is to define ground reality. The last is to say thank you. In between the two, the Leader must become a servant for his Organization. At last it can be easily said that the role of a Leader should be in a way to produce more and more Leaders, not to produce  followers only.
