CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1      Background of the study

No organization has ever existed without leadership. An individual need not be the senior officer or commander to be a leader. For any organization to function with some degree of efficiency and effectiveness, having a leader at its head is vital.

Leadership is known to be a serious component of successful organizations. Irrespective of its importance it is difficult to understand, but there are some emerging areas of broad agreement (Furtune: 1998).

Firstly, leadership is an act of influence based more on integrity than authority. It is not the exclusive domain of designated leaders who occupy positions of authority, and arguably not even predominantly so (Precious: 2000). Rather it is an act defined by the nature and quality of relationship between people that go beyond specific roles. Every member of anorganization has a responsibility to provide an opportunity to participate in leadership.

Seeing leadership in this way does not deny the reality of power and authority, but it takes adifferent approach to organizational and community life (Chikaima: 1990). The leadership approach is grounded inan ethic of care, based on informed insight and enacted through trusting personal relationshipsthat are mutually influential. Ideally, authority and influence create a constructive synergydespite their contrasting natures.

One of the criteria to be a manager is that you must have good leadership skills to motivate and infuse good work practices in staff. Also, managers need good people skills to gain the trust of the workers. When managers give orders, they must have the power and motivation to inspire confidence, so that the workers have positive attitudes towards the tasks and the organization. This is necessary to achieve good results in the workplace. The managers and directors of an organization must demonstrate that they have the power and the good governance needed to control their workers, and it is imperative that they have good leadership skills as well, so that the organizations can achieve the results they want (Bartol et al. 2003).

Good leadership must maintain a balance between vision, strategy and results. Managers and leaders, and also subordinates, must know the organizational goals (Domaine 2004). Leadership involves leading, conducting, escorting, guiding, tracing, steering, vision and most importantly, managing others (Evans & Evans 2002). A leader is also a person who leads a group when work tasks and social functions are to be performed. Hanbury, Sapat and Washington (2004, p. 568) point out that „leaders are people who do the right thing but managers are people who do the thing right. Both roles are crucial, but they differ profoundly‟.

This study aims to shed light on the compelling notion that the hr Managers’ competency profile influences the performance of anorganization. Nowadays, the implementation of principles and techniques of hr Management has expandedrapidly in many enterprises worldwide, implying the necessity for effective project leadership. The developmentof similar strategic issues has been extensively investigated in numerous studies with the use of computational methods.
