INTRODUCTION
Good leaders are made not born .If you have the desire and will power ,you can become an effective leader. good leaders develop through a never-ending process of self study, education, training and experience. This guide will help you through that process. to inspire your people into higher levels of teamwork, there are certain things you must be, know ,and ,do. These do not come naturally, but are acquired through continual work and study. The best leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills. Before we get started, les define leadership. Leadership is a complex process by which a person influences others to accomplish a mission, task or objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent. A person carries out this process by applying his or her leadership attributes (belief, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills). Although your position as a manager, supervisor, lead, etc. s and objectives in the organization, this power does not make you a leader... it simply makes you the boss. Leadership makes people want to achieve high goals and objectives, while, on the other hand, bosses tell people to accomplish a task or an objective. Bass' (1) theory of leadership states that there are three basic ways to explain how people become leaders, the first two explain the leadership development for a small number of people. These theories are: Some personality traits may lead people naturally into leadership roles. Tg is is THE TRAIT THEORY. Crisis or important event may cause a person to rise to the occasion, which brings extraordinary leadership qualities in an ordinary person. This is THE GREAT EVENT THEORY. People can choose to become leaders. People can learn leadership skills. This is THE TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP THEORY. It is most widely accepted theory today and the premise on which this guide is based. When a person is deciding if he respects you as a leader, hedoes not think about your attributes. He observes what you do so that he can know who you really are. He uses this observation to tell if you are an honourable and trusted leader, or a self serving person who misuses his or her authority to look good and get promoted. Self serving leaders are not as effective because their employees only obey them, not follow them. They succeed in many areas because they present a good image to their seniors at the expense of their people. The basis of good leadership is honorable character and selfless service to your organization . In your employees' eyes, Your leadership is everything you do that affects the organizations objectives and their well being. A respected leader concentrates on what she is [be] (beliefs and character), what she knows job, tasks, human nature), and what she does (implement, motivate, provide direction).What makes a person follow a leader? People want to guided by those they respect and those who have a clear sense of direction.to gain respect, they must be ethical. A sense of direction is achieved by conveying a strong vision of the future.

TWO MOST IMPORTANT KEYS OFLEADERSHIP

Hay's study examined over 75 key components of employee satisfaction. They found that: trust and confidence in top leadership was the single most reliable predictor of employee satisfaction in an organization.
