Abstract

Leadership is currently one of the most talked about issues in business and organization. It is defined by Steven M. Smith as “Leadership is the ability to adapt the setting so everyone feels empowered to contribute creatively to solving the problems”. Leadership reflects the ability of the person to do something based on his talent and skill. Sometimes talent isn’t completely necessary; it is the training, experience and persistence that make individuals great leaders. As each individual is different, the leadership style adopted by each one is different. The decision that each person takes as leaders in each situation is different. It may be depending upon his reaction to the situation, previous experience that he had come across, based on his intuition etc. Today’s businesses require leaders and not managers. In light of the above need this study is an earnest attempt to measure the leadership potential and its development among the students of a business school at NITTE. This study is especially significant in its findings that leadership is a trainable attribute rather than an innate attribute as it was believed earlier. A leadership profile indicator tool was used in measuring pre and post training impact of leadership on student’s leadership development process. The significant finding of this study was in terms of breaking the myth that male were more suitable for leadership positions in business than females.
