Good evening everyone.
Now, after discussing the aim of the leadership, I found quite interesting to consider characteristics that
enable to increase the effectivness of leaders. Some of them we could reject, some of them we could take. But
anyway they have big unrealizat potential. So let us discuss and apply them in our personal and career life.
Deming propose these chracterstics that helps to increase the effetcivness of leaders:
Responsible for advancement in their system
Seeking new knowledge and learning
Increase job satisfaction
Helps employees to understand their work
- Good psychologyst ( not only understands, but feels people)
- Ability to give passion and increase overall mood of employees
So, I am offering an open discussion.
Give your thoughts. Maybe not exactly from academic literature, but you found them useful from your experience and personal life.

I have found an interesting thought on leadersip by the guru of 20 century in the mangemnt science.
Edwrads Deming had a considerable experience in the business environment. Since he was sent by USA to help Japan improve their economic situation. As everybody see, that Japan now is a very competetive country. In these development Deming contributed a lot.
Now his brilliant idea about the aim of the leadership:
The goal of the leadership is to improve the performance and quality through bringing pride to work.
I found this stament as an interseting one. Bringing pride implies the deep understanding human relations at work. By capturing their desires and needs, leaders should increase the job satisfaction enormously. It is very hard to do. However the outcomes from these are increadible: great commitment of workers, establishing creativity, realising their potential etc.
Leders's role is make the job as a place that everybody wants to attend and excited about doing it.
Therefore, leaders has to find the ways of increasing job satisfaction. One suggestion could be - establishing a great and challenging goal from which society could contribute a lot..
So, let us discuss on this issue.....
What are the steps of bringing pride to work.
