Some researchers are of the view that there are as many definitions for leadership as there are persons who tried to define this concept. Peter Drucker, a management consultant defines leader as a person who has followers and that leader requires influence in order to gain followers. The leader gain influence of followers through flexible means of training and education as well as support and protection. The leader has such abilities that without destroying the uniqueness of person, he could achieve unity of common values and directions. Building credibility and trust are the foremost characteristics of leadership (Winston & Pattersom, 2006).

Leadership is a word best defined by each individual interpretation; it is a behavior which has no fixed or static ‘meaning’. I will describe the attributes and makings connected to how leadership is made; and the importance of organizational assessment. According to our text, Leadership is the ability to influence followers to achieve common goals through shared purposes (Rost, 1993; Rost & Barker, 2000). Leadership and management differ due to the varying actions one must do and both are biased to individual perspective, understanding the difference between leadership and management is important. As stated before, leadership is the ability to influence others to achieve common goals.
(Maccoby, 2000, para 8). Leadership is ?one of the many assets a successful manager must possess? (The Difference, 1997, para 2). While management can be considered a position, leadership can be considered a relationship. Leadership is the connection between the leader and led that makes management successful.
