What is leadership? As quoted by Alan Keith (2001), “Leadership is about creating a way for people to contribute for something extraordinary to happen.” Leadership is a process by which a member of a group or organization influences other associates to help the group or organization accomplish its goals. Leaders are individuals who exert influence to help achieve group goals.

There are two types of leaders, which are formal leaders and informal leaders. Formal leaders are managers who are given the authority to influence other associates in the organization to accomplish its goals. However, informal leaders are members of an organization with no formal authority but can exert just as much substantial influence in an organization because of their special skills or talents that will build the organization’s realization in helping them accomplish the goals.

From the research that I have made, I find that Arnold Schwarzenegger was an informal leader at first as he had no formal authority to influence others but he only had his special skills and talents as an actor and a bodybuilder. From an informal leader, he then managed to run for the governor of California and received authority to lead California, which makes him a formal leader. Arnold Schwarzenegger experienced what is it to be the greatest bodybuilder of all time. His reputation in the bodybuilding world and blockbuster films makes him an informal leader. In addition, the President of the United States also acknowledged him for his expertise in physical fitness and his one of a kind ability to create ideas and share it with citizens of America.

Furthermore, the leader trait approach sought to classify durable personal traits that differentiate leaders from non-leaders. There are eight relevant traits which are intelligence, task-relevant knowledge, dominance, self-confidence, energy/activity…...

The two-factor theory of motivation explains the factors that employees find satisfying and dissatisfying about their jobs. These factors are the hygiene factors and motivators. The hygiene factors when absent can lead to dissatisfaction in the work place but when fully catered for in the work environment on their own are not sufficient to satisfy workers whereas the motivators referring to the nature of the job, provide satisfaction and lead to higher motivation. This paper adds to the understanding of what motivates the Ghanaian worker most and creates the platform for a re-evaluation of the thinking and viewpoint that......

...Introduction Generally, e-business (electronic business) is running a business on the internet. It is not only buying and selling but also providing services to customers and collaborating with business partners. The first one using this word was IBM when it launched the thematic campaign around the term in October, 1997. Recent years, many companies are rethinking their business in terms of the new culture of the Internet and capabilities. They are using the Web to buy supplies from suppliers, to make sales promotions, and to do the marketing research. In order to understand the moral, ethical and legal issue, it’s necessary to fully understand the advantages and disadvantages compared to the traditional business (The Economist, 2000b). For the buyers, the main advantage is the sale price will be 9% - 16% lower than in brick-and-mortar store (Varian, 2000). Other factors such as vast goods and services offering are also benefits. However, there is a drawback for some people; the cheaper prices are superficially an advantage because online shopping could not provide them with a gratifying social contract. For the seller, there are two significant advantages which should not be forgotten. It can allow interactive communication among user and distance-collapsing. Companies do not have to pay for the higher rent for the retail stores and warehouses. Most e-business companies use the computer to cut the cost of employees’ wages.
