Influence Processes


see the paper attached


Nahavandi (2006) defines leadership as the process of influencing other people to accomplish shared objectives. On the other hand, Baldwin and Grayson (2004) argues that  leadership is a transactional event that occurs between leaders and their followers. Leadership has several components and they include change and culture management, community collaboration, strategy development, organizational design and visioning (Baldwin & Grayson, 2004). The role of leadership in an organization cannot be underestimated. Six influence processes are used by leaders to shape the strategic direction and performance of an organization. This paper discusses the influence processes that leaders use to transform their organizations.
