Leadership speaker – Yossi Ghinsberg

“A group of sheep led by a wolf can beat a group of wolf led by a sheep” according to some leadership theorists.

Leadership position is not attained only by the number of books read; it goes beyond numbers of years spent on earth, being wealthy does not automatically makes you a leader. Then, who is a leader? Or what does leadership entails? How can we identify a leadership speaker?


Who is a corporate motivational spaker?

A leader is a person with leadership qualities; ability to lead others, a person shouldered with leadership responsibility.

In itself, being a leader requires a good preparation and ability to face challenges, and I can say that being a leader IS A CHALLENGE, which only courageous people can attain, because leadership carries great responsibility. However, for a leader to effectively carry out the leadership function, legal power is not enough, must have a convincing and compassionate authority, in other to have a great appeal to the subordinates, magnetically attractive and subtle influence.

The unity of purpose, the duties, powers, responsibilities and interests of the leader is a necessary condition for the leader to achieve effective leadership.


Types of a leader

Charismatic Leader

These people have great communication and energy skills, spreading enthusiasm to everyone they lead. Of course, ends may be good or not, but when this type of leadership is used for positive ends; great results are achieved, as they dissipate stress in the group and encourage joy and enthusiasm.

Democratic leader

In contrast to the centralized leader, this leader is characterized by being empowered as the leader, encouraging the participation of subordinates, and mainly dependent on their personal expertise and influence. From the management perspective, organizational goals are achieve through motivations, incentives to encourage the subordinates in getting the best out of them.

However, due to the decentralization of this power, the flow of command within the organization slows down because the decentralization of power generally leads to a reduction in decision-making speed, which in turn increases the cost of resource allocation within the organization. This maximises and improves the capacity structure of the subordinate.

Therefore, relative to the centralized leader, this leader is more for the organization to cultivate the future development of necessary intellectual capital.

Centralised Leader

Centralized system of leadership focused the power and control on an individual. Management decisions are made by an individual, the subordinates are not empowered to carry out major functions without the consent of the centralised leader.

It is clear that this system reduces the organizational costs of management. This is beneficial to the organization but at the detriment of the subordinates. it is not conducive to the healthy development of their career .

Transformational Leader

Numerous experts in human resources agree that this type of leader is the most complete of those that have so far been defined. A kind of generic leader. He is versatile, charismatic and resolute, but without falling into personalise or putting his interest before the company. He owns his decisions, but at the same time, he likes to feel supported by a support team that is involved in the processes that are in his charge.
