In fact, there are many different interpretations of leadership, and many explanations of its meaning, but basically it is a relationship through which one individual influences the actions or behaviour of other people. Leadership is vital for every company, as its managers must have some skills to motivate employees and give them a vision of the future. The latter is crucial as managers must identify potential markets, customers, opportunities, and reduce risks of the company in an uncertain future. Yet all in all, the result hoped of applying leadership theories in organisations must be effective at all levels within it.
