  • The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things” - Ronald Reagan, President, USA. Encapsulating beautifully the mark of a true leader, this quote is something that defines how we look at leaders in today’s world. A leader is an individual in command of leading, directing, and managing people. They are figureheads who inspire and encourage a team to accomplish what is expected. Leaders motivate their people to make the decisions needed to achieve their goals. A fresh approach to leadership is required in the complex business climate of today. Successful businesses are led by strong leaders that empower people to be engaged and proactive within the organization. They give their staff opportunities to voice their opinions and ideas as well, not only aiding in achieving organizational goals but also in developing their own skills as future executives.
