Leadership Theory Books: “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” The historic words by J.F. Kennedy motivated every American to contribute to their country. A good leader motivates people to do things for him and his organization. It is their responsibility to create an environment conducive to an exemplary fellowship style instead of passive obedience. Compared to a manager who cares about doing things right, a leader cares about doing the right things. They know their team well, utilize expertise within them and share regular feedback in order to bring success to not only the team but also their organization. So, how to become a successful leader that is respected by colleagues and valued by the organization is an important lesson in understanding management. Leadership theories provide some hints to help archive the goals for potential good leaders that can inspire others, energize followers or even change the world.
