According to Stephen Covey an "Effective leader is one who is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out." In addition, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, effective means "producing positive effects", and a leader is "one who heads an organization." In Animal Farm, by George Orwell, Napoleon is the character who portrays these traits along with the trait of practicing utilitarianism. Therefore, Napoleon is an effective leader who increases the economy of Animal Farm and practices utilitarianism, the greatest good for the greatest number. One instance the Napoleon shows effectiveness is in the way he leads the economy of Animal Farm.

Napoleon's decisions on what Animal Farm should do prove to be effective rendering Napoleon an effective leader in the instance of producing desirable effects for the economy. Another instance that outlines the effectiveness of Napoleon adduces its self in the orders he enforces. When Napoleon " accept[s] a contract for four hundred eggs a week, the price of [the eggs] pay[s] enough [for] grain and meal to keep the farm going till summer " was clearly providing the best for the most amount of animals. By doing this, Napoleon harms only a small percentage of the animals while the majority benefits. When " the animals work like slaves [for the windmill] " this provides for the

For instance, in the novel Animal Farm, written by George Orwell, two pigs come to authority after their former leader, Old Major, passes.
