Why do groups need a leader?

A leader also encourages communication and builds relationships between team members so that they can work successfully and learn from each other. When people collaborate remotely, the hierarchy moves them in the same direction, but leaders can flex to promote autonomy and creativity. As a leader, you need to think about how each individual is affecting the group. Are there people whose talents are not being used well? Is someone acting in a way that causes divisions or is it draining the group of their energy? Is there anyone who needs help learning to work as a team? Leaders, quite rightly, are the heroes of the corporate epic (despite some villainous leaders).

They motivate us to go to places we would never go otherwise. They are needed both to change organizations and to produce results. In any business environment, good leadership is perhaps the most important competitive advantage a company can have. Therefore, it is not surprising that management academics focus tirelessly on the attributes of successful leadership.

A leader is important in managing organizational change. A leader will implement a reward structure to help achieve strategic objectives that result in the union of individual and business goals.
