Leadership Skills

Definition and Concept

Hughes and Ginnett (2006) define leadership as a process rather than as a position. Leadership can be defined as a process of “showing the way for others, either by example or by advocating a new direction” (McCrimmon, 2010). Leadership skills can be defined as the qualities required by a leader to successfully execute a project and the parties associated with it. Leadership is the fundamental need of every system. Its application is everywhere. Be that a home, a restaurant, a school, a hospital or a company, there has to be a leader in order for the system to run properly. A classroom would become a fish market if a teacher does not lead it. A home would run out of finances if the parent/parents don’t control the expenditures of the children. A company would lose track of the project scope, time and quality if the employees are not led by the manager. People vary in their scope of leadership, yet they have to execute certain leadership skills irrespective of the scope of leadership or the circumstances in which they have to execute the leadership.
