Introduction The essence of leadership is one that is attributable to a variety of factors, situations and circumstances. As such, it is usually perceived to have different meanings depending on the context from which it is viewed. With respect to organizational leadership, several definitions exist. Essentially, leadership relates to the ability to get others to follow directives willingly for the betterment of an organization, as well as the capacity to inspire people to work towards a common objective[Lei02]. Problem Statement The case of Amy Touchstone presents a scenario in which leadership is required to overhaul the current state in which the athletics club she works in exists. It is clear that the effectiveness and efficiency of operation in East End Athletics Club is significantly low, despite the fact that the club charges fees for its services at a competitive rate and there is a considerably satisfactory turnout as far as clients are concerned. The clients seem to have little or no respect for the club, the staff in the club seem to pay no attention to the needs of the client and in some cases, and there is an air of disregard in the methods of work of the club employees. In addition, the charges of the club seem not to be equivalent to the services that the clients get in the facilities. Clearly, there is need for a leader to take measures to solve these issues, thereby making the athletics facilities more conducive for the clients. This in turn will translate in success to the organization and its staff[DMM12]. This paper will focus on the traits and qualities of leadership that Amy Touchstone requires to implement changes that will solve the aforementioned problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
