1. Briefly explain the 5 Leadership dimensions and the relative tactics for the 5 dimensions?

LEADERSHIP The activity of leading a group of people or an Organization, or the ability to do this. Leadership in an organizational role involves: (1) Establishing a clear vision, (2) Sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly, (3) Providing the information, knowledge, and methods to realize that vision, and (4) Coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members or stakeholders LEADERSHIP AND STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT The key to business success largely depends on two main factors, good leadership and effective management. Leadership and management are both skills that an organization should possess, courtesy of a chosen leader, with the support of its personnel. Good leadership can be attained through practice while effective management is learned through a course. Some good leaders are born; managements are achieving by consulting management consultants.

Leadership is when you guide the organization into a result that your group has agreed upon. You and the rest of the team have a defined understanding to determine the ability and to articulate visions and goals. Leadership is said seen just as a facet of successful manager. It usually works on precedence for strategic planning and management and long-term success. Management is the planning and organizing of projects and operations, allocating resources to minimize costs and maximize benefits, directing practices and procedures, establishing controls to measure the effectiveness and efficiencies, and motivating subordinates. Management is concerned with present activities and the immediate results of those activities. Generally, the task of management is a lot heavier than that of leadership. A leader is the spearhead of the group going to a direction. And once they've found the direction, manager will take over to have consistency and make the group prosper after being established. Managers are incremental, while leaders are radical. Manager's decisions are usually based on the book or ethics that every member constructed but leaders decide based on their intuitions.
