Leadership


Leadership has been described as the “process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task”. Definitions more inclusive of followers have also emerged. Alan Keith of Genentech states that, 'Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.' According to Ken 'SKC' Ogbonnia, 'effective leadership is the ability to successfully integrate and maximize available resources within the internal and external environment for the attainment of organizational or societal goals.'

A notice board is also clearly vi...

The advent of DDT, with its wide spectrum of activity and low human health hazard seemed to be full of promise for the control of agricu...
