The rare jewel of effective leadership Billy C Sichone3
he subject of leadership can not be ignored if we are to talk aboutincreasing company output as well as a motivated teamwork. Leaders are a“hot cake” in today’s turbulent environment where organisations need tobe constantly changing if they are to remain buoyant. Good leaders are onever increasing demand and expensive to lose or hire.The paper that lies in your hands contains the thoughts andresearch that I undertook in the years between 1998 and 2000 during MBAstudies. It has been interesting to learn that Manager / leaders are scarceand extremely critical now more than ever before. It has also beenrefreshing to note that teamwork is now being adopted everywhere. I waspersonally elated when World Vision Zambia started talking more about itand went steps further to implement it. This was done when the ProgramManagers begun attending Leadership Training Courses at University of South Africa (UNISA) resulting in much better relations and work culture.I must confess that I was shocked to discover that
Leadership andManagement are radically different
. I have always assumed that theyare one and the same thing. I stand at the apex of my research and tracemy trail, how so different things look! How so mind opening the study hasbeen!I have handled this subject in four sections in the followingfashion: Firstly, I have given a general overview of leadership of yesterdayand today. In the second place, I have sought to concentrate on effectiveleadership. In doing this, I have shown the nature and marks an effectiveleader, how to develop leadership, the results of good leadership and then,I have wrapped up the whole work by giving my own personal viewsabout leadership tomorrow and beyond. I have exited the orbit of leadership by giving some recommendations.If this work will help some soul, it will much delight the author.Farewell.
