Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on an investigation of growth via effective leadreship and management the strategies that need to be employed.a case study of ogo oluwa traders Paper must be at least 1000 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Whereas Plachy (2005) contends that leadership is the ability to define and accomplish an organisation’s aim by examining the needs, evaluating resources and setting goals and objectives consistent with the aim and resources, planning, directing and evaluating actions designed to reach the goals and objectives.
Whilst McWhinney believes that the definition of leadership should be limited to the style (approach) and skill that are used by a person or group to guide an effort. Johnson and Scholes (1993) argue that leadership is ‘the process of influencing an organisation (or group within an organisation) in its efforts towards achieving an aim or goal. They argue that a leader is not someone who is at the top position but rather someone who can influence. The definition given by Johnson and Scholes is contradicting to some extent in that how can one be influential without being at the top position or lead role?
On the contrary, Dubin (1951) argues that, leadership is the exercise of authority and making of decisions. Concurringly, Hemphill (1954) voice his view that ‘Leadership is the initiation of acts that result in a consistent pattern of group interaction directed toward the solution of mutual problems’
From the arguments raised, one can deduce that a leader can or cannot be seen physically in an organisation but has the power to manipulate or persuade organisational policies. If such is the case then a leader has the final ‘say’ or decision in matters affecting an organisation and therefore responsible for the organisation. Moreover, it can be deduced that leadership is a relationship between a leader and his followers.
Analogously, management is to forecast and plan, to organise, to command, to coordinate and to control (Fayol 1916).
