3.4.2 Why is Leadership an important Element of Success for your Company?
There is no doubt that a good leader can move mountains. A good manager might know the business and the company in detail, however, if he/she cannot inspire others failure could be around the corner. "Motivated employees are one of the most important results of effective leadership. Most successful managers are also successful leaders. They get people to help accomplish any goal. Accomplishing goals, however, is not enough to keep employees motivated. Helping employees accomplish their own personal and career goals is an important part of motivation. Leadership and motivation are interactive. The more motivated the followers, the more effective the leader; the more effective the leader, the more motivated the followers".(Erven) For this, it is important to have certain knowledge about leadership and motivation and how both interact in the life cycle of any company.
