Leadership skills

Abstract:

Some of the major skills required for leaders are: motivational skills; communication skills; time-management skills; fiscal skills; and conceptual skills. Every style has its own set of skills associated with it. An autocratic leader is skilled at accomplishing tasks by demanding work from subordinates and might actually be successful in some cultures and organizations; a democratic leader is successful with his/her people skills and gets the job done. Learning and honing these skills and styles, and using them at the right time in the right place at the right level, will help leaders in their path to success.
