(Jugdev, K. 2002) A preponderance of concentration on management and leadership has been specifically on individual manager or leader. However the perspective and position of these persons are quite different in that the leaders or mangers seem to push their employees to desired aims, objectives and goals. Leaders seem to pull their employees in a certain direction for accomplishment of goals. As such the reciprocal nature that exists is found between those who motivate to lead and those persons who decide to follow.
