ABSTRACT
The article informs that there is a desperate need for more effective leadership in the ailing companies in the U.S. The tendency in most American businesses has been to see leadership as equivalent to management and administration. The misconceptions about leadership have played a major role in causing the middle-of-the-pack performance of the U.S. corporations in world competition. The problem is that as long as there is an outdated understanding about what constitutes an effective leader, the corporations will continue to invest in obsolete remedies. The winners in the corporate race will be those companies that make purging their culture of excuses an absolute top priority. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the leaders to provide the impetus necessary to establish and maintain on excuse-free culture. A company's culture will always be a combination of the culture of the employees and the culture of the leaders. Many organizations don't differentiate between leadership on the one hand, and management and administration on the other. However, management and administration are the antitheses of the concept of leadership that is required to regain pre-eminence in the global marketplace.
