Leadership Development

by Dr. Sharad Kumar

Posted on Oct 26, 2018 at 03:00 PM



The most researched areas in the human behaviour are Leadership and Motivation/Job Satisfaction. Most of the research papers published and a large number of PhDs. are produced around these constructs. I have clubbed the motivation and job satisfaction together because of their strong cause effect bindings, though which is the cause and which is the affect depends upon the person(s), situation and time.
