Introduction

Question: Write a term paper about corporate leadership, identify two organizations in Kenya, best and worst performers then bring out the difference which makes them perform well and bad respectively. Corporate leadership Cooperate leadership is a strategic plan to provide continuous support for projects through the persistent development of very capable leaders. It has a constant focus on the company vision. Successful cooperate leaders communicate the vision with management and not hold the end strategy. Effective corporate leadership is very similar to effective individual leadership. An organization might consider starting with a snapshot or initial assessment of what the leadership culture is by conducting a survey of individuals across different levels of the a company. Impactful leadership within corporations must start at the top and become part of an organization's culture. Role of corporate culture in corporate leadership Over the long-term, an organization's culture probably does more to influence corporate leadership than anything else does. It determines how individuals and organizations as a whole react and perform on a daily basis. ...read more.

It has also created and implemented corporate wide business metrics that provides a clear sense of what needs to be done in the company. It has also provided clear and constant two-way communication of corporate values, vision, mission, and critical success factors for the purposes of understanding and context. The corporation also listens to employees and takes appropriate action. This shows an effective corporate leadership that is open to criticism, seeks feedback, and is accountable for its actions.

Conclusion

Secondly there is Poor communication and this is probably the greatest weakness in the organization. There is Poorly communicated, misunderstood, and unclear corporate goals, vision, direction, corporate values, and critical success factors that are leading cause of poor organizational performance, poor morale, and internal confusion in the Kenya explorer tea company. Frequently, when you speak with senior VP's in the organization, they are adamant that their organization's values and goals are absolutely clear and understood throughout the organization, yet when you speak with individuals at levels ranging from senior to junior managers this is clearly not the case. Organizational goals, objectives, values, and critical success factors need to be communicated and reinforced on a continuous basis. As things change, individuals within organizations need to be able to contextualize this change with their organization's values, vision, direction, etc., and be able to assess the impact of change and take the necessary actions in order to beat the high competition in the KETEPA tea company. I believe it is but it is no easy task. It requires significant commitment throughout the organization and leadership...especially from the top! ...read more.
