Best Inspiring Leaders to watch 2023

There are many trends that surround the current leadership styles. Often leadership is misunderstood to be commanded than lead. For example, a transactional mechanical style of leadership would involve accolading, rewarding to influence organizational outcomes and business results too. Though may be a natural style in this time of the era, it also has its own benefits which involves wage increment, time o for employees, or even recognizing efficient employees. The other form, which is the transformational one, involves more than just rewarding its employees. A transformational one delves with the understanding in & out of its employees and is deeper than the former. Such a leadership trait deals with encouragement, motivation and total support to its employees on course of pursuance of great results.
