Leadership is easily defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as the capacity or ability to lead. This simple statement encompasses the essence of leadership. It, however, does not address the complexities and diverse parimutations that are presented to the manager of today's business. These complexities derive their existence from the very nature of man. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the aspects that help the modern day manager cope with the human factor.

This human factor provides the challenge to today's manager. We will discuss the psychological makeup of man reviewing personality structure and conception. Dr. Levinson's views on the essence of man and the ego ideal will be developed and incorporated. The basic nature of human behavior will be discussed.
