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”.

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.'
