"LEADERSHIP in Team-building and Project Management"
LEADERSHIP as a Team-Player Dr. Richard Wu, IAESTE-China 2006, 5, 14 Leadership Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and effective. Leaders carry out this process by applying their leadership characters, such as beliefs, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills. Leadership vs. “Lingdao” Although your position as a manager, team leader etc. gives you the authority to accomplish certain tasks in the organization, this power does not make you a leader; it simply makes you the boss. Leadership makes the followers want to achieve high goals, rather than simply bossing people around. Part One Leadership By Characters Leadership by …..
