 Concept Definition and Explanation



According to Koontz and O'Donnell, leadership is the skill of manager which enables him to persuade subordinates to apply themselves with zeal and confidence.


Zeal reflects ardor, earnestness, and intensity in the execution of assignments.  Confidence reflects experience and technical ability. In some work situations managers may not exert leadership. Subordinates are motivated by the need for a job and for income, as well as by social pressures.


Leadership function can be categorized as psychological or sociological.  As a psychological function leaders must motivate people to work with zeal and confidence.  The sociological function encompasses the reaction to felt and expressed needs of subordinates for direction, responsiveness to their needs, and effective representation of the group before superior levels of authority.
