The Image of a Local Leader of the Present-Day Municipal Institution
Languages of publication
Leadership is not indifferent to the quality of the functioning of the local administration. The reality in Poland is not conducive to a long-term vision of the leaders of the country’s development. Leadership model oscillates between myth of martyrdom and rhetoric of populism. The repair of local governments should not, therefore, begin with the legal and political tools, but the mentality of the people. The hearing is to clarify the issues related to the recruitment and early career in local governments and the consequences of leadership style and work for the functioning of a team of people who make up the offi ce. Unfortunately, the application is pessimistic about the general impression about the role of leaders in local government institutions. Holders often have managerial positions, identifi ed rather with the power authority, hierarchy, issuing commands than with a vocation, mission and motivating employees. Effective project management also depends on the personalities of the leaders who will inspire his colleagues to act. There are also events that are a barrier to the promotion of positive interactions such as stress caused by the pressure of time or the wrong division of labour. Leadership is primarily a communication and contact between supervisor and employee. In this kind of environment, local relationships in particular show some invisible phenomena in everyday life.
