Frequently asked questions
Leadership is the ability to influence, motivate, and guide followers and others you are overseeing. In the context of business, being a leader requires you to instruct, guide, and direct other team members placed under your supervision. It's a company leader's responsibility to align team members with the organization's goals and motivate them to perform necessary tasks to realize those goals. Typically, the closer a leadership role is to the workers, the narrower and more specific the scope of their supervision. Someone in a chief officer position takes a broad view of an organization's vision with a more generalized approach. Further down the line, a worker's direct supervisor focuses more on each individual's day-to-day responsibilities and tasks contributing to higher leadership's vision.
