Supervision and Leadership

Leadership is a process to influence the people to achieve an assigned target and the leader is the one who motivates the people to achieve the targets. A leader can be a leader because of his natural ability or he might either learn, acquire or might be forced to become a leader. There are different types of leaders in different walks of life but a leader in the police system is a one who influences the people to achieve the objective of a task, department or the overall mission of the system. A manager only has to plan, execute and control but the leader has to go beyond this and he not only has to have a vision, but he also has to direct the people, be creative and be an initiator who always does the right thing. Different leaders have different traits and different personalities because of which they lead in different ways (Friedman, 2003).
