| LEADERSHIP STRATEGIES IN THE MEDIA

‘‘DOING WHAT IT TAKES’’
There are various leadership skills, but one which is very crucial is the mental ability of a leader to endure and persevere. ‘‘Doing what it takes’’ also refers to the determination, persistence and inflexibility of a leader when there is a goal to be achieved.
LEADERSHIP THEORIES AND CONCEPTS
THE GREAT MAN THEORY
The Great man theory believes that leadership cannot be taught or trained, but that those equipped with such qualities are born. Leaders are born with exceptional qualities, and not made. The notion assumes that leadership is hereditary and leaders usually rise from the aristocracy. In relation to the notion of doing what it takes, the theory assumes that is only great men who have the ability to do what it takes to succeed.
THE TRAIT THEORY
Trait theorists contended that there was a finite set of personal characteristics or inner traits, which distinguished effective leaders from non-effective leaders. The leader is endowed with superior qualities, which can be mental or moral. In this theory, traits of persistence and determination are common to leaders. Leaders who can ‘‘do what it takes’’ have mental traits such as task-persistence, the ability to understand, learn and to adapt. They also have moral qualities such as loyalty, firmness, and self-assurance.
BEHAVIOURAL LEADERSHIP STYLE
Under the behavioural leadership style, there is a focus on the leader’s behaviours that affect follower’s motivation and performance. In this theory, leadership becomes a style, which can be learned, acquired and applied. It describes how leaders behave personally towards their followers or subordinates. A behavioural leader can either be autocratic or democratic.
Autocratic leaders that persevere show drive, initiative and are relentless. A democratic leader is always ready to listen to…...

Celtel Nigeria

...ESMT–309–0096–1 ES0961 March 27, 2009 ESMT Case Study Celtel Nigeria: Towards serving the rural poor (A) Introduction In mid–2007 Celtel Nigeria was the second largest mobile telecommunications company in the Nigerian market with a 28 percent market share and subscriber base of approximately eight million. The company had experienced considerable success in serving Nigeria’s cities and larger towns, but had only recently shifted its attention to serving poorer consumers in rural areas—a massive but as of yet under tapped market. But this shift from urban to rural had not been easy, and although some 50 percent of Nigeria’s population lived in rural regions the challenges of reaching them sometimes seemed overwhelming. The absence of a reliable national electricity grid meant that the company’s rural telecommunications towers had to be run on diesel generators, resulting in high maintenance and diesel fuel costs. Theft and vandalism of expensive communications equipment and generators This case study was written by Jamie Anderson of TiasNimbas Business School and Martin Kupp of ESMT European School of Management and Technology. Sole responsibility for the content rests with the authors.

Nigeria

... Nigeria Geographical, Political, and Economic Overview Lyla Snider HUMN 305 - U4WW (WI12) Professor Brian Kasvosve March 11, 2012 Geography and Background The Federal Republic of Nigeria, commonly referred to in short as “Nigeria” is located in Western Africa. It is bordered by Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and Benin. It is also a coast line to the Gulf of Guinea located in the Atlantic Ocean. Nigeria gets its name from the Niger River which flows through the western side of the country and proves as a valuable resource. Nigeria is considered to be Africa’s most populous countries and also one of the most diverse, consisting of approximately 250 ethnic groups. The countries religious views are shared mainly between Muslim and Christian beliefs. The official language of Nigeria is English, however, many different dialects spoken including Hausa, Yoruba, and Fulani (Rosenburg, 2005). Now that you have an understanding some of the demographics of Nigeria, let’s explore a little history. In the late 1800’s Nigeria and British were heavily involved with trade. By 1914, Nigeria was officially united. The growth of education and economic development grew vastly. The drive towards “nationalism” and demands for independence moved Nigeria toward self-government and by 1922 the British introduced direct election into the legislative council By1959, the North had gained self-governing status. These political restructuring, ultimately led to Nigeria gaining full independence on......

...organised bodies as it is the case in the UK through the Financial Service Authority (FSA). The FSA regulates both prudential aspect and conducts of business. It is funded by industry levy and governs by a board of overseers. This board of overseers are mostly people in the financial sector not necessarily in government Llewellyn (2000). 5.2 CONCLUSION For any economy to measure to international standard there must be the presence of some foreign banks, the Nigerian economy has witnessed such presence. However, a number of these banks tends to vary from time to time and from region to region. The analysis of the research has brought out the challenges being faced by foreign banks in Nigeria. Corruption and irregular government policies seem to be the major problem. In emerging economies like Nigeria, the government plays an active role as they are known to be the highest spenders. Over the years, various government policies have affected the operation of the banks. There is need for consistency in government regulation and approving system. Finally, the political climate must be conducive because it affects the economic climate. When the political system is stable, more foreign investors will be willing to come into the country ,moreover, this will lead to better technology, better competition and assist in sanitising the Nigerian financial sector ....

...LINK BROJ 3, CITIRAJ U LITERATURI ! 2.2.2 Directs Sales The direct model refers to the fact that Dell does not use the retails channel, but sells its PCs directly to customers through its website, Dell.com, as Figure 4 shows. This way the intermediary steps that may add time and cost are eliminated, and Dell is directly linked to its customers. Figure 4: Distribution channel of Dell vs. a traditional company [31] In fact, Dell sells directly to all its customers, “from home-PC users to the world’s largest corporations” [54]. This way it creates a direct relationship with each individual customer, which turns out to be a great source of competitive advantage. As Michael Dell has stated, this direct relationship “creates valuable information” about the customer, thus Dell knows who the end users are, what they have bought from Dell and what their preferences are, a fact that allows Dell to offer add-on products and services, and stay, in general, closer to the customer [27]. As Lawton et al [29] suggest, this “provides Dell with a wealth of marketing and product development information”. Dell distinguishes three rough customer segments: large organizations (large companies or government institutions), small and medium businesses, and personal consumers; the mix of customers served is wide (no customer represents more than 1-2% of Dell’s revenues) and there is a focus on large customers (70% of Dell’s......

Cosumerism in Nigeria

...CONSUMERISM Historical Overview of Consumerist Movement The first consumer movements took place in the 1900s and were fuelled by such factors as rising prices and unethical drugs scandals. The second was in the 1930s, was caused by similar cases as in the 1960, and has been growing stronger since then to date. This was because of complex set developments. Consumers have become better educated, products have become increasingly complex and hazardous and there is general discontent in Nigeria. Evolution of Consumerism in Nigeria In a free economy, businesses can deliver abundant goods and services to those who can afford them, but could make consumers vulnerable due to unscrupulous practices of certain organizations. Nigeria as a third-world country has had consumerism more in the form of government legislation and enforcement than organized consumer associations. Thirty-Seven years after the first consumer protection agency was established, cases of consumer rights abuse are still preponderant. The aim of this exploratory and conceptual study is to assess the performance of agencies in charge of consumer rights protection based on their statutory functions. The study finds that, for the most part, the agencies are below par in performance with very poor level of awareness among Nigerian consumers who are reluctant to enforce their rights. This reluctance is largely due to poor level of education among Nigerian consumers, unnecessarily rigid judicial system that......

...September 2003 From supplier to store For IKEA, distribution is an important part of the equation of creating home furnishing articles at prices which are as low as possible. Today approximately 10,000 IKEA products are manufactured by 1,600 suppliers and transported to 186 IKEA stores around the world, often via one of the company’s 27 central warehouses and distribution centres. At IKEA, distribution is all about making the route from the manufacturer to the customer as short as possible. In the early days of IKEA, the “warehouse” was a shed on Elmtaryd Farm in the south of Sweden where the founder of the company, Ingvar Kamprad, lived with his parents. In those days products were despatched from Elmatryd with the help of the county milk van that visited the farm each day. Things have changed a bit since then, however. Today IKEA operates 27 distribution centres in a total of 16 countries. From here IKEA products are delivered to 186 stores around the world – 165 IKEA Group stores and a further 21 stores operated by other franchisees. IKEA works in various ways not only to rationalise and simplify distribution, but also to minimise the impact this part of the business has on the environment. The secret is to calculate as exactly as possible how many products will be needed to satisfy demand. This eliminates any unnecessary costs for production and warehousing. The hallmarks of IKEA distribution are: – a global distribution network – large volumes – flat packages – low......

The key for distribution is to align the manufacture to the sales, shortest point where the manufacturer to the customer purchasing the product. First, Starbucks will assess the competitors line of product to identify all channels of categories so Starbucks can identify their where they can be successful. Competitors' distribution channels. As a starting point, make a list of any competitors that could compete directly with you for the same customers. Then divide these competitors into categories based on the distribution channels they currently use. The result will be a picture of which channels are being successfully used in your type of business and location. (2015, p. 1) The lines of distribution are as follows, first of all direct lines to currently own retail outlets, wholesale outlets, Direct mail through flyers or catalogs, telemarketing, Cyber marketing, and cable or TV advertisement. Each of these avenues provide value to the sale of the product. The wholesale and retail outlets provide a direct link between the customer and the manufacture but this can be the more expensive direction because the products provided are manufactured and shipped to the retail stores without orders in place.

Economics in Nigeria

...A Look into Nigeria’s Economy The Republic of Nigeria, more commonly known as Nigeria is the largest country in Africa and was under the control of Great Britain until 1960 when they gained independence. In 1999 Nigeria returned to a democratic form of government which has worked well for them until just recently when security concerns began to arise due to the presence of the radical Islamist sect, Boko Haram. Nigeria has the continent’s largest population with 173.6 million people and the largest economy as well. Although Nigeria’s economy is the largest in Africa, 61 percent of the residents are reported to survive on less than $1.00 per day with corruption within the government being the main reason for poverty. Nigeria is also the largest oil producer in Africa and the 10th largest oil producer in the world and as of 2009, the Nigerian film industry was the second largest movie producer in the world. When looking at economic freedom, Nigeria is ranked 120th in the world and 22nd in the Sub-Saharan Africa region and has an Economic Freedom Score of 55.6. The labor force of Nigeria is roughly 54.2 million or 56.1 percent of the population and the unemployment rate is 8%. Nigeria has experienced strong economic growth averaging 6.5 percent within the past ten years and inflation has decreased in recent years to the rate of 8 percent. It is my goal to explore unemployment in Nigeria, the reason for its strong economic growth as well as the improvement and decline......

Nigeria

...WRITING SEMINAR With a population estimated at 170 million, Nigeria is the seventh-most populous country in the world. The total area it covers is just over 900,000 square kilometres and it comprises 36 states. Among these many and diverse people, there are over 250 various ethnic groups with different languages, customs, cultures and religions. The three major ethnic groups are Igbo, Hausa / Fulani, and Yoruba. These three alone account for over 60% of the population of Nigeria. Each tribe is located in a specific geographical position in the country. The Igbo ethnic group is located mainly in the Southeastern part of the country and has a population of about 15 million and the language spoken is called Igbo, but it has different dialects in different states such as Delta-Igbo in Delta State, Ikwerre in Rivers State, Ika in Anambra State to mention a few. The Yoruba ethnic group is located mainly in the western part reaching into the central parts and Yoruba is predominantly spoken with Owo, Ikere and Sagamu as minor dialects. Finally, the Hausas are located in all of the northern part of the country which is mostly desert-like, and they are the largest of all the various ethnic groups. Hausa, Fulani and other minor languages such as Tiv, along with Arabic are spoken by the people. Despite all these minor languages, the lingua franca of Nigeria is English. Religion is very diverse among these three ethnic groups. The Igbos are mainly Christians, however, deities such as......

...Shell Nigeria is one of the largest oil producers in the Royal Dutch/Shell Group. 80% of the oil extraction in Nigeria is the the Niger Delta, the southeast region of the country. The Delta is home to many small minority ethnic groups, including the Ogoni, all of which suffer egregious exploitation by multinational oil companies, like Shell. Shell provides over 50% of the income keeping the Nigerian dictatorship in power. In 2000 oil and gas exports accounted for more than 98 % of export earnings and about 83 % of federal government revenue. New oil wealth and the concurrent decline of other sectors, fuelled massive migration to the cities and led to increasingly widespread poverty, especially in rural areas. The Nigerian government hanged 9 environmental activists in 1995 for speaking out against exploitation by Royal Dutch/Shell and the Nigeria government. The most prominent activist was Ken Saro -Wiwa and in 2009 Shell settled the case with a US$15.5 million “humanitarian gesture”. The settlement came days before the start of a trial in New York that was expected to reveal extensive details of Shell's activities in the Niger Delta. There is currently a joint effort by the government and Shell to suppress a growing movement among the Ogoni people towards, environmental justice, recognition of their human rights and economic justice (in the form of wages and equal opportunities). Additionally, Shell has brought extreme, irreparable environmental devastation to......
