Influence processes refer to the ways that leaders use to provide the necessary strategic leadership necessary for the day to day management of their organizations. The top management of an organization is expected to offer strategic direction other than get involved in the day to day management of the organization. Business theorists agree that leaders are capable of adapting their professional style to that of the organization’s culture or they may attempt to shape the organization shape to fit their style. Essentially, five influence processes have been isolated as some of the most visible and common practices among leaders. The five processes are; use of direct decisions (Nahavandi, 2006), resources allocation (Schein, 2004), reward systems (Schein, 2004), role modeling or own behavior (Schein, 2004) and selection and promotion of other talented leaders. Whichever process they use, leaders decisions in a great way impact the direction of their organizations as well as influence their employees’ motivation and conduct (Nahavandi, 2006).To offer a fair difference between the processes, this study will briefly outline each process and how it’s practiced.
