One can define business as series of action to be taken to achieve the desired business goal. The business goal is the future desired position as highlighted by the vision statement. Management forms various strategies to achieve the visionary goal. The strategy is the roadmap which takes the business organisation ahead towards the visionary goal. Here it should be noted that well drafted strategy may fail if the same is not implemented in proper way. Hence management needs to implement the strategy in more proper and effective manner. Here the role of leader comes in picture. The leader is the person who leads the organisation ahead by taking all stakeholders together. This is a very crucial task.

Instead of scolding employee for his non workable plan, he used to appreciate his participation and ask the employee to research more to make it workable. This has motivated workers towards their work. This evidences the agreeableness quality of the leader. Moreover he has tried to manage the organization in more efficient, planed and organized manner. He has ability to forecast the upcoming changes and in this line, he used to make necessary changes in his business model.
