Leadership is defined as the process of visualising to a better future; whereby one motivates and enticing others to think and plan ahead as to facilitate the change (Jones, 2007). However, according to Bishop (2009), healthcare professionals have a poor leadership skills due to lack of strong leaders, who mainly emphasise more on traditional models of management.

Thus, the fundamental concepts of leadership are important, as to help leaders to look at the different surroundings of situations and to be able to adjust their leadership style accordingly (Tomey, 2009).

Our Communities have come to citizens with little to no patience. They have no motivation to change something if it takes a long time to achieve. One may often time put off the problem and procrastinate, or they will never make the change. This system goes through the grueling stages one must endure and persevere through to get this change.The four stages of the Transtheoretical Model of behavior Change by Prochaska that help shows these divisions, are precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action stage, and maintenance stage. The first stage of change is precontemplation in which individuals may be cognizant of the change that they desire, however, they have no motivation to alter this problem.

The majority of people will decide to change their health behavior throughout their lifetime. The reasons for the change might be quite different from individual to individual. Some may be motivated to take action after experiencing a life threatening illness, while others are proactive and change their health behavior to decrease the risks of developing a potential disease. However, even if the reasons for the change are valid and well understood, there is a great possibility that one will not follow set goals long term. Stacy Carter, an assistant of professor and an author of the Social Validity Manual, expresses her opinion about people implementing a scientifically proven health behavior change treatment in their routine, “if it's something that is going to cause them a lot of effort, or is difficult to implement, then they probably are not going to use it for long” (Cranford, 2011).

Every day we make a decision, to catch a cab or ride a bike, eat that doughnut or eat healthy. Each of our decisions are based on our behavior, built up over periods of time. Most people have behaviors that they are proud of and want to keep, for instance a person might be good at setting aside money for the future and will want to keep that behavior as long as possible. That being said, every person will have behaviors they are not proud of and will want to change. That is where the Transtheoretical Model of Change comes into play, listing out the five stages of precisely what it takes to change your behavior. The five steps in the transtheoretical model of change are; precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance. In this paper I will walk you through two possible applications of this theory, one of them is my behavior of procrastination, and the second being a friend of mine's inability to get up in the morning.
Changing situations throughout the world affect all organizations in business today. Therefore, most organizations acknowledge the need to experience change and transformation in order to survive.

It is difficult to overcome the obstacles involved with change despite all the articles, books, and publications devoted to the topic. People are naturally resistant to fundamental changes and often intimidated by the process; the old traditional patterns and methods are no longer effective.
For centuries leaders have been analyzed in order to determine what the traits and characteristics of a successful leader are. Leadership, as defined by Koontz and Weihrich (2008) is “the art or a process of influencing people so that they will strive willingly and enthusiastically toward the achievement of group goals” (p. 311). Leadership plays an important role in employee’s participation, creativity, recruitment to an organization, their commitment to the organization, and productivity levels. Over the years, there have been a number of theories surrounding leadership such as the “Great Man” theory, which, according to Riaz and Haider (2010), “assumes that leaders are born and have innate qualities, therefore, leaders
