Good leadership is vital for the survival, achievement of goals and growth of any organization. Employees are the most essential resource of any business organization. The success of business organizations depend upon the proper utilization of manpower resources. A one minute manager is the cry of many companies.

Organizations are craving in recruiting a manager who will win the whole hearted co-operation of employees and the one who will greatly influence their behavior in a positive way towards the achievement of goals. If business organizations get that manager, then there will be good leadership.

I have just mentioned the word leadership, what is it? Well, I will define it using the definition given by Peter F. Drucker, "Leadership is the lifting of man's visions to higher sights, the raising of man's performance to higher standards, the building of man's personality beyond its normal limitations." Mmm... this seems too long for you, does it really? Let's define it in a short and catchy way using Koontz and O'Donnell definition, "Leadership is the ability of a manager to induce subordinates to work with confidence and zeal."
