The paper "What Should Be Done to Become a Better Leader of the People and Organizations" is an engrossing example of coursework on management. This paper provides a study of what needs to be done to become a better leader of people and organizations with the consideration of theories on leadership as well as other contentious theories. The reference organizations for this purpose are non-profit organizations, committees, and social organizations. According to (Smart and Hamm, 1993), any leader of a position in an organization has to pursue excellence and exemplary leadership yet it has been considered a noble an unattainable task.

On the other hand, there are principles that if carefully implemented, can result in a leadership style that enhances a person’ s intellect, personality, and socio-economic situation of a company. In addition, becoming a better leader requires the knowledge of oneself in terms of strengths and measurable attributes and limitations and confines that a person has (Richard, 2005). There are certain tools for growth such as self-realization and the ability to conquer uncertainties are regarded as factors that can enable us to overcome barriers that prevent our progress.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss what can be done in order to become better leaders with the consideration of Competing Values Framework and personality test results. A new plan for leadership in organizations is developed that incorporates both the personality test results and the Competing Values Framework. The impact of the new leadership plan is then discussed and the advantages of its application are explained. Purpose The purpose of this paper is to develop a management system that accounts for the needs of people and the organization at large.

It also provides the courses of actions that should be taken to ensure both the organization and people are managed by avoiding stubbornness, timidity, and other psychological attitudes that inhibit the practice of heuristic leadership. The developed model helps in arriving at a new leadership theory that puts more emphasis on psychological training by defeating negativism and enhancement of self-mastery and discipline in order to obtain optimum mental clarity.
