A leader is somebody who can influence and change people and organizations. They are the only people who can change a traditional organization into a learning organization. A good leader will build relationships with his or her followers. They will recruit new employees, then they will motivate them to become better, then they will coach them and teach them the necessary skills and then they will build trust that will make a relationship last for a very long time. They have to make important decisions regarding policies and the decisions they make will affect the lives of every single person in the organization. This means that they have a huge responsibility and their decisions have big consequences.
They can improve effectiveness and efficiency
A good leader will make sure that an organization is working at its best and it is also achieving all of its goals. They can make decisions that will improve efficiency. They can reduce overhead costs. One of the ways to do this is by making a decision to rent equipment when the business needs it rather than buying them. This means that capital investment will reduce and also costs such as repair costs will reduce. Outsourcing can be another way of reducing overheads. They can outsource secondary activities and only focus on their main activities.

They will know the correct leadership style
Good leaders know what type of leadership style is right for what type of situations. Normally leaders will behave in two ways, either democratically or autocratically. A democratic leader is someone who believes that employees want responsibility, they want to achieve high goals and they will like work only if the work itself is made inserting. An autocratic leader is someone who thinks that employees try and avoid responsibility and need to be influenced to perform by rewarding or punishing them. Employees under this type of leader generally only perform well when the leader is present.
Substitute for leadership
Very rarely leaders may not be needed. In departments or organizations where workers are highly skilled and experienced leaders may not be needed. In relation to the tasks to be done if these activities were highly structured then there will be no need for a task orientated style. In relation to the organization if employees worked together in the right spirit by helping each other out and feeding off each other there will be no need for a people orientated style of leadership.
