Leadership is the ability to build up confidence and zeal among people and to create an urge in them to be led. To be a successful leader, a manager must possess the qualities of foresight, drive, initiative, self-confidence and personal integrity. Different situations may demand different types of leadership.

Domains in this track

Influence

Influence usually results from a specific action, command, or request, but people also alter their attitudes and behaviors in response to what they perceive others might do or think.

Motivation

Motivation is derived from the word motive, or a need that requires satisfaction. It is a reason for actions, willingness, and goals - and these needs, wants or desires may be acquired through influence of culture, society, lifestyle, or may be generally innate. An individual's motivation may be inspired by outside forces (extrinsic motivation) or by themselves (intrinsic motivation). Motivation results from the interaction of both conscious and unconscious factors, and has been considered one of the most important reasons to move forward. Mastering motivation to allow sustained and deliberate practice is central to high levels of achievement, and it governs choices among alternative forms of voluntary activity.

Participative Management

Rooted in the concept of servant leadership, Participative Management is a type of management in which employees at all levels are given greater control and coordination of the basic activities and functions of the enterprise. Decision-making authority is delegated and responsibility for identifying and setting organizational goals is distributed. It is a management style where decisions are taken through inclusion of every one of those who will be affected by them.

Strategic Management

Strategic management provides overall direction to an enterprise and involves specifying the organization's objectives, developing policies and plans to achieve those objectives, and then allocating resources to implement the plans. It is not static in nature; the models often include a feedback loop to monitor execution and to inform the next round of planning.

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is an organizational management activity that is used to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization’s direction in response to a changing environment. It is a disciplined effort that produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.

Strategic Thinking

When applied in an organizational strategic management process, strategic thinking involves the generation and application of unique business insights and opportunities intended to create competitive advantage for a firm or organization. It can be done individually, as well as collaboratively among key people who can positively alter an organization's future. Group strategic thinking may create more value by enabling a proactive and creative dialogue, where individuals gain other people's perspectives on critical and complex issues. This is regarded as a benefit in highly competitive and fast-changing business landscapes.
