LA FUNCION DE UN LÍDER
Desde los días bíblicos, se ha necesitado de una persona que guie a un grupo de personas hacia la victoria. Igual que en los viejos tiempos, las grandes organizaciones de la actualidad necesitan de individuos que guíen los esfuerzos de los grupos de colaboradores hacia el logro de metas y objetivos. Un buen líder debe desempeñar eficazmente su función para que la empresa sobreviva. El deber del líder es guiar las acciones de los demás para que realicen las tareas.
Responsabilidades del Líder

The group, which also operates pub restaurant chains, on Tuesday said underlying pretax profit rose to 216.1 million pounds ($349.18 million) in the six months to Aug. 29, slightly ahead of a company compiled consensus forecast for 213 million pounds. Revenue jumped 12.4 percent to 1.14 billion pounds. Whitbread, which makes almost all its sales in Britain, has expanded rapidly due to demand from cost-conscious customers for affordable hotels and a rising popularity for takeaway coffee, helping underlying pretax profit grow by 12.0 percent per annum since the onset of the recession. On Tuesday it said it was on track to meet targets to grow Premier Inn UK rooms by 45 percent to 75,000 by 2018, and double Costa's total sales to 2 billion pounds through expansion at home and abroad, with a particular focus on China. Total sales at Premier Inn rose 12.2 percent in the first half, boosted by 12 new hotel openings and strong business-led trade in London. Like-for-like sales were up 3.3 percent.

...Successful leadership – how would you know? Boardrooms and business school classrooms are equally preoccupied with leadership, and success is often assumed to be about profit or Total Shareholder Return. It’s neither. For leaders wanting to measure their own success, for those who appoint leaders to know what they are aiming at and for outsiders assessing the quality of leadership, Andrew Likierman shows how to do it. Thinking W as Julius Caesar a successful leader? What about Ghenghis Khan? Simon Bolivar? Or Napoleon? Because we tend to think of these as military leaders, the answers look pretty straightforward. Each achieved major military successes. But then Napoleon was ultimately defeated – does that make him a failure? After all, he won a lot of battles before Waterloo, and his sweeping political and legal reforms have been the basis of French administrative life for nearly 200 years. Now let’s move to the politicians. How do you feel about describing Bill Clinton as a successful leader? George W. Bush? Tony Blair? Vladimir Putin? This is altogether more difficult ground. Some of you will have already decided; those of you who have not made up your minds could argue that it is too early to say. The historic verdict on Bush and Blair will probably depend on what happens to Iraq over the next 20 years. Those better informed about Russia than I am can make up their own minds about Putin. Moving next to business territory, with a few exceptions – say Bill Gates,......

...Introduction of the relationship between leadership and ethics. First, leadership is a process that is not specifically a function of the person in charge. Leadership is a function of individual wills and individual needs, and the result of the dynamics of collective will organized to meet those various needs. Second, leadership is a process of adaption and of evolution; it is a process of dynamic exchange and the interchanges of value. Leadership is deviation from convention. Third, leadership is a process of energy, not structure. In this way, leadership is different from management-managers pursue stability, while leadership is all about change (Barker 2001, p.491). In organizational terms, as in life in general, ethics are beliefs about what is right or wrong, they provide a basis for judging the appropriateness of behavior and they guide people in their dealings with other individuals, groups and organizations, managers are witnessing to those right and wrongs. (Khar, Praveen & Aggarwal,2011; Hansen, 2011). As Wines (2008, p.484) commented: ‘At bedrock, those who profess ethics believe that human beings are autonomous moral actors capable of making meaningful choices’. 6Approaches to ethics tend to fall into one of two philosophical camps: the consequentialist (teleological) and the non-consequentialist (deontological) (Pettit2003; Harper et al, 1996). Consequentialists argue that ethical values are meaningless unless they are actively promoted. For......

...Leadership? What is leadership? According to Webster's Dictionary defines leadership as the position or guidance of a person or thing that leads, directing, commanding, or guiding head, as of a group or activity. However Leadership has not one single definition, but many. Leadership is often an intangible factor that makes one group more effective than another. It exists at different levels within organizations and should be woven throughout the entire organization. Different organizations use different ways in effectively teaching or molding their employees how to be an effective leader. One such company is the R.E. Brown Company and Associates, who have developed a yearlong program that is strictly used as a program to teach their employees how to become a more effective leader. This program doesn't directly start off with the introduction of the nine behaviors, but of little tasks given to the participants. They are broken into small groups where they interact with each other, summarize common threads, and then present their findings to the larger group. Then once this has taken place they develop specific action plans to take back to their groups and from there on they work coherently together as a team. This develops a bond, and creates a model of team leadership, sharing, and reflection. Once this has happened then the teams are introduced to the nine behaviors of leadership where they discuss each one and try to use the information that they have gathered to take back...

...Leadership In the changing business environment, leaders of all organisations may face unprecedented uncertainty, especially the technology advancement and changes among the employees. To survive and succeed, leaders should have some necessary attributes. Meanwhile, some changes for leadership skills have to be made to confront the challenges. Two reports( Ladkin & Weber 2011; Cappelli et al. 2010) and a reflection (Useem 2010) discuss current business leadership issues in a global business environment . While in the article “Leadership Issues and Challenges in the Tourism Industry: A Hong Kong Perspective”, which focuses on Hong Kong business leaders, the author Ladkin & Weber have a different overall position compared to the other two articles: “Leadership lessons from India” by Cappelli et al. and “Four Lessons in Adaptive Leadership” by Useem. These two articles are more concerned with interactions between manager and employees. All three texts will be compared and contrasted in this review according to business leaders themselves, their attributes to employees and concepts of mission and vison. All the authors highlight the necessary attributes needed by leaders and adaptive leadership. Useem focuses on four attributes ‘Meet the troops, make decisions, focus on mission, convey strategic intent’ (P.75). He emphasizes the link between the leaders and the subordinates. Similarly, Cappelli et al. highlight ‘transformational’ (P.93) leadership style in India, in......

... THE LEADERSHIP EFFECT 2 Leadership plays a significant role in a company’s ability to succeed or fail. Having a proper selection of a leadership staff that is reflective of company established values will ensure that the employees are guided in the direction in which the company has established. Understanding the diversity of leaders, benefits of great leadership, ability to implement change, company sustainability and employee success is all what great leaders do. Large and small companies have a variety of employees that we can divide into three groups; those that manage, those that lead, and those that follow. Typically leaders have a clear understanding of what they believe their abilities are, however while in leadership roles at times can find themselves struggling to lead due to management expectations and direct group needs. Leadership type qualities can be known as leading by example and doing what employees are expected to do before they do it. Per the University Alliance® (2015), Good leadership qualities can be; o Communication – Good communication talents are mandatory for all stages in a growing work industry; nevertheless leaders need to own exceptional communication abilities. o Motivating teams – Leading by example and showing the group that you are part of the team by executing and not simply directing. o Team building – Knowing your groups strengths and weaknesses will allow the assembly of strong teams that work well together is......

...losing a power struggle with the board of directors in 1985, Jobs resigned from Apple and founded NeXT, a computer platform development company specializing in the higher education and business markets. Apple's subsequent 1996 buyout of NeXT brought Jobs back to the company he co-founded, and he has served as its CEO since 1997. Steve also co-founded and was the CEO of Pixar Animation Studios, which created some of the most successful and beloved animated films of all time including Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars and Ratatouille. Pixar merged with The Walt Disney Company in 2006 and Steve now serves on Disney's board of directors. Jobs also previously served as chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios; he became a member of the board of The Walt Disney Company in 2006, following the acquisition of Pixar by Disney. With Steve Job , Apple commands a dedicated consumer base and is know for its premium brands like iPad, iPhone, iPod, iTunes etc . Apples success is known under Steve Jobs Leadership. Although it is not easy to characterize Steve Jobs' leadership style to any one particular theory, to evaluate his leadership style two theories of leadership will be used the Transactional and Transformational theory and secondly the Hershey Blanchard's situational theory. Steve Jobs' leadership style seems to be both transactional and transformational theory. According to Bass (1985) and Burn (1978) both these theories more......

It Is Said That Many Companies Are over Managed and Under Led. Define Leadership and Explain What the Path-Goal Theory of Leadership Is. Identify the Four Leadership Styles of Path-Goal Theory and Explain When They Are Most Appropriately Used.

...managed. They tend to have higher free will and thinking, work and etc. Leaders will have different leadership styles to manage and lead their employees which are identified by the path–goal theory of leadership. This is why the attitude and the behavior of a leader will influence his/her subordinates on achieving their goals and objectives. Leadership is mostly defined as a process of leading or influencing a group of people or an organization to achieve their goals. According to Yukl, ‘it is obvious that a person can be a leader without becoming a manager, and a person can be a manager without leading’. In my opinion, a leader has long-term of view which inspires and motivates his/her subordinates and work together to achieve their vision, mission, goals and objectives. And, a manager is a problem solver of the status quo which focuses on productivity and efficiency. Hence, they are different from each other. Path-goal theory is related to leadership. It is a specific theory which is based on leadership styles or behaviour. Path-goal theory states on how leaders achieve high level of performance, influence own and their employees satisfaction and performance to achieve the performance and organisation’s goal. This is by clearing and clarifying the path, increasing the number of rewards that is available for them. Additionally, a leader can also change and regulate his/her leadership style of behaviour to the employees and task behaviours so that they will have the......

The Impact of Leadership at Ford Motor Company

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY FOR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GROWTH (BPPG) BERNARD A. LARTEY WALDEN UNIVERSITY JULY 14, 2016 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY From the topics of Dynamic Leadership courses the most helpful courses are the contents and assignments of Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, week 5, and week 6 respectively. Week 1 deliberated on the qualities of leaders: Planning, monitoring, controlling, evaluation, performance, policy formulation, decision making, motivation, recruiting, and implementation of decisions. This has helped me to better understand leadership role. Week 2 discussed that leaders and followers must complement each other for a successful business. The two parties combined to balance the mathematical equation of business for profitability and success. This course highlighted the fact in addition to the leadership role must be complimented by good qualities in order to command the following: Intelligence, time consciousness, humility and obedience, skillfulness of communication, competence, motivation, kindness, empathy, fairness, virtue, and mutual respect. These virtues must also reside in the followers. Impact: The leadership role specified in week 1 and the qualities expressed by week 2 have immensely reawakened my consciousness that leaderships is not about academic qualification alone, but demand good character from followers and leaders as well. Besides, I have assimilated good virtues and have since been practicing them, leading by example for my followers to follow. ...

...Why Leadership Is The Most Dangerous Idea in American Business If you're an entrepreneur, almost everything about "leadership" as we know it is bad for you. But there's another way to lead. Here are the rules.  Maybe you've noticed: Never in the history of management science has leadership been more studied, worried over, theorized about, and debated than right now -- not least because for two years the world has supplied leaders-in-training with a (mostly unhappy) curriculum. The stock bubble collapsed. The economy soured. September 11 came and begat whole new anxieties that prompted unprecedented questioning about vocational life and leadership in communities of every kind. Corporate scandals and greed brought CEO reputations low and raised ethics concerns high. And nowIraq. Throughout the contentious diplomatic run-up and then during the conflict itself, leaders were dissected everywhere. You'll recall the stories. Bush the autocratic unilateralist vs. Blair the participative consensualist. Rumsfeld vs. the generals. Churchill circa 1942 vs. all of the above (an op-ed smackdown that somehow Winny always wins). By the time this is published, there will have been more stories: How to lead. How we're being led. How we want to be led. The world's curriculum, like it or not, is rich with object lessons. The problem is that, for entrepreneurs, those lessons are all wrong. Not because they're necessarily bad in themselves, but because they're all to do with the wrong kind of......

...“The executives at companies that went from good to great and sustained that performance for 15 years or more were all cut from the same cloth. It didn’t matter when the transition took place... the successful organisations all had a level 5 leader at the time of the transition” (Collins 2001) Discuss the importance of leadership in the context of developing corporate strategy.
