The media and investment news sources have a tendency to talk about the taxes changes and the stock market at a macroeconomic level. Family financial planning occurs at the microeconomic levels. What that means is that families, with their Advisors, need to look at these issues and what it means for them specifically. This starts with an investment and cash flow plan which looks at a family’s specific goals and objectives. Then the plan needs to take into account a family’s cash flow, liquidity needs, risk tolerance, and family dynamics. The planning considerations should be discussed and monitored in relation to the overall investment plan.

LeadershipÂ has been described as “a process of social influenceÂ in which one person can enlist the aid and supportÂ of others in the accomplishment of a commonÂ task “.Leadership is “organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal”.
It also refers the different things to different people to identify its purpose, establishing direction, gaining commitment, and motivating others towards success. While a leader’s influence and control may be imposed on others, it is often connected to the needs and objectives of his or her followers. Power is the capacity to affect the behaviour of others. It includes the notion that leaders influence and exercise control over others. Some suggest that leaders act in the general long-term best interest of a group or organisation. Power is the capacity to affect the behaviour of others.
Types of leadership:
The autocratic leadership style allows managers to make decisions alone without the input of others. Managers possess total authority and impose their will on employees. No one challenges the decisions of autocratic leaders. Countries such as Cuba and North Korea operate under the autocratic leadership style. This leadership style benefits employees who require close supervision. Creative employees who thrive in group functions detest this leadership style.
Leader share problem with followers, get their consultation and takes decision. But decision may or may not reflect ideas of followers. Leader takes decision and persuades other that the decision is correct. It is useful where followers are skilled and their consultation is important.
A laissez-faire leader lacks direct supervision of employees and fails to provide regular feedback to those under his supervision. Highly experienced and trained employees requiring little supervision fall under the laissez-faire leadership style. However, not all employees possess those characteristics. This leadership style hinders the production of employees needing supervision. The laissez-faire style produces no leadership or supervision efforts from managers, which can lead to poor production, lack of control and increasing costs.
Often called the democratic leadership style, participative leadership values the input of team members and peers, but the responsibility of making the final decision rests with the participative leader. Participative leadership boosts employee morale because employees make contributions to the decision-making process. It causes them to feel as if their opinions matter. When a company needs to make changes within the organization, the participative leadership style helps employees accept changes easily because they play a role in the process. This style meets challenges when companies need to make a decision in a short period.
