Abstract

“Leadership” is the discipline of deliberately exerting special influence within a group to move it towards goals of beneficial permanence that fulfill the group’s real needs.  It is about people coming together to work towards making a positive change.  Thus, leadership is the activity of influencing people to strive willingly for group objectives (influencing others to some purpose) “Value” is the worth or importance which is attached to something.  This paper notes that Nigeria is now devoid of what might be called national values: values that make for progress and unity and recommends that leaders should have emotional intellectual breadth and admit faults.  Above all, they should be God-fearing. These qualities will enable them to stand for peace and justice in a country like Nigeria which has been torn apart by ethno-religious tendencies and in which greed, corruption and dishonesty have become “virtues”

Keywords:  Dimensions, Leadership Qualities, Leadership Styles, Values, Value Orientation
