  1. 1. Leadership By Elaine Zedack “The real leader has no need to lead-- he is content to point the way.” - Henry Miller
  2. 2. Famous World Leaders • Martin Luther King, Jr. • Mahatma Gandhi • Nelson Mandela • General Patton • President John F. Kennedy • General Norman Schwarzkopf • President Frankin D. Roosevelt
  3. 3. What made them great leaders? These were the people that influenced history with their goals. They had dreams and the courage to pursue those dreams. Not only did they pursue their dreams but they also influenced other people and even nations to join their cases.
  4. 4. How does this translate to Hospitality Management? A good leader in Hospitality Management demonstrates the same basic qualities as these great leaders in history. A Hospitality leader possesses charisma and the foresight to be able to see their dreams become a reality. The prefect hospitality leader has the skills to manage a group of people, motivate them to do well, and build their decision-making ability. A true leader in this industry should be able to see when their team no longer needs his or her guidance and move on.
  5. 5. What skills should Hospitality Leaders possess? • Organizational Skills Good organizational skills are something that managers should possess and leaders don’t necessarily need. However, it is my opinion that a truly great leader should possess every skill a manager has and more. Organizational skills are a basic need that leaders must possess in order to be able to lead their team in the best possible way. Without organizational skills papers can get lost along with information that could be a vital part to the puzzle the team is trying to solve. • Charisma Charisma is a must for a good leader because this is the ability to persuade people to want to achieve the dream. Charisma is what influences thoughts and ideas. It is the quality that leaders must have in order for their ideas to be heard and to carry the weight needed to influence a person’s thoughts.
  6. 6. • Good Speaker Articulation is key to getting into the minds of the people on your team. It is the quality of a good speaker that forces people to stop talking themselves and focus on you without realizing what they’re doing. Leaders are made when people listen and understand what’s being said so without the quality of a good speaker it is much harder to become a leader and gain the respect of those around you. • Courage New ideas are often scary. They can seem like daunting tasks that no single team can accomplish. However, leaders must know that a goal can be reached and they must be able to step up and carry out the smaller goals needed to accomplish the larger one without fear of failure.
  7. 7. Conclusion Leadership is an important attribute that must in every aspect of society. However, in the business world and, consequently, the Hospitality world, leadership is a must. Without leaders we would never advance in any area of life. Keeping the status quo would be alright with everyone. Can you imagine living in such a world?
  8. 8. “A leader is a dealer in hope.” - Napoleon Bonaparte
