Characteristics of Leadership
 
An analysis of the above definitions reveals that leadership as a managerial process has the following characteristics:
 
Leadership is a process of influence: Leadership is a process whose important ingredient is the influence exercised by the leader on the group members. A person is said to have an influence over others when they are willing to carry out his wishes and accept his advice, guidance and direction. Successful leaders are able to influence the behavior, attitudes and beliefs of their followers.
 
Leadership is related to a situation: When we talk to leadership, it is always related to a particular situation at a given point of time and under a specific set of circumstances. That means leadership styles will be different under different circumstances. At one point of time, the subordinates may accept the autocratic behavior of the leader while at a different point of time and under a different situation participative leadership style may be successful.
 
Leadership is the function of stimulation: Leadership is the function of motivating people to strive willingly to attain organizational objectives. Leaders are considered successful when they are able to subordinate the individual interests of the employees to the general interests of the organization. A successful leader allows his subordinates to have their individual goals set up by themselves in such a way that they do not conflict with the organizational objectives.
