So the manger can delegate detailed oriented tasks to another employee. This will then promote teamwork, unity, and showing the other team member that they can be trusted.

It is important to find the right balance between listening and doing. Application of transformational leadership to motivate and empower staff Transformational leadership is an appropriate leadership style to motivate and empower staff as it encompasses charisma, inspiring employees, challenging employees and allowing employees to achieve their long-term goals in a personalised manner. It is one of the most inspiring leadership styles. These leaders facilitate conversations between major stakeholders of the organisation. Should any problems arise in an organisation with transformational leadership, I believe that it will be dealt with swiftly and in a manner beneficial to everyone.
Anyone who wants to assume a leadership role within an organization is doing it because they see there is an opportunity for them to take an organization and make it prosper. They see there is an opportunity for them to prove they have the qualities one person must posses to be a great leader and they want to prove themselves as being one. However in doing so, one must know there are many pros and cons of being a good leader. There are great advantages to being a leader. Leaders are looked up on by their subordinates and feel important.
Effective leaders inspire those around them. They achieve this by setting goals and aiming to achieve them as efficiently as possible. A leader's passion should be contagious, and their energy should affect others around them and should change their approach. A leader's dedication, commitment, and ability should motivate others not just to do as their leaders do but also to believe that what they’ve set out to achieve is within their reach. Effective leaders use themes, mottoes, and symbols to inspire the people around them to maintain their focus and complete all necessary tasks.
