THE IMPACT OF LEADERSHIP STYLE ON EMPLOYEES PERFORMANCE
(A CASE STUDY OF UNILEVER (NIG) PLC, LAGOS)
CHAPTER ONE
1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Leadership has been defined as the ability of an individual to influence the act or the process influencing people so that they will strive willingly toward the achievement of group goal (koontz O’Donnet and Weihrick, 1988:37). To lead is to guide, direct, conduct. The purpose of the leader is to help the group achieve their maximum objective. The leaders in any group do not stay behind while the workers perform. They rather place themselves before the group to inspire the group in the accomplishment of the organization goals.
Leadership involves leadership styles. By leadership style, we mean the way in which the functions of leadership are carried out, the way in which the manager typically behaves toward member of the group.
