ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ability and capability of a leader to connect with people that results in the coming together and execution of plans. A leader's disconnection can be attributed to several reasons which includes his desire for controlled perfection, being goal-oriented and lack of courage, that he does not see other people in the process of attaining a goal. Good leadership is described to be connecting with others by acting with courage, that is, leading by being oneself and not being afraid of making a mistake.
