Maslow present this set of needs as a hierarchy, consisting of: The theory argues the fundamental level starts with the physiological need for food, water and shelter. This is followed by security and social needs. Maslow believed that the higher level needs could only be met after the lower lever needs had been satisfied. This theory is often misused within the workplace as it was not intended for use in the workplace and Maslow only started to use it himself after it became popular as that type of tool. However, the theory is important as an idea or a process that could be used when meeting a team member’s

1. Introduction People trying to find a way to decide what is a good leader or how to be one. In the past decade, a lot of scholar, researcher proposed different theory or model about the leadership quality. Some theory and model focus on the leadership style or the characteristic that are leader needed. However, a psychologist Fred Fiedler introduced the contingency model of leadership in mid-1960, which states a leader's effectiveness is based on the situation.
As beforehand specified, Maslow accepted that to comprehend this level of need, the individual must attain the past needs, as well as expert team. While the four-drive theory joins much robust proof of the presence of the four intrinsic drives and the cooperation of feelings and insights, this is still a theory being developed. Whilst it suits the thought of adapting needs, it doesn't completely clarify them. Maslow expresses that while he initially thought the needs of people had strict rules, the "orders are interrelated instead of pointedly divided." This implies that regard and the consequent levels are not strictly divided; rather, the levels are nearly related (Cronburg,
Maslow's Need-Hierarchy Theory Maslow’s need hierarchy also is one of the famous motivation theory with five instinctive need arranged in a hierarchy, whereby people are motivated based on each level of the hierarchy According to Maslow, employees have five levels of needs which are physiological, safety and security, belongingness, and self-actualization. Maslow argued that each level must to fulfil before move to another level of the hierarchy. Maslow described the human needs which need to fulfil from the lowest to the highest in the. The provision of these needs changes people or employee behaviour in the task towards achieving organizational objectives.

The magnitude and importance of leadership in different organizations has long been unnoticed and unobserved from a long period of time. But now its importance has been realized and now it has become a burning issue all over the world. Effective leadership enhances the productivity of employees in all the sectors of the wealth in a country and now it has motivated researchers, nationwide and global organizations to receive keen and intense notice in it. Productivity can be defined as “an economic measure of output per unit of input. Inputs include labor and capital, while output is typically deliberate in revenues and other GDP components such as business inventories”.
It explains the idea that few traits like emotional stability and ability to compose one’s self, accepting errors, good communication and interpersonal skills, and wide intellectual horizon are essential in a person to hold the position of leadership (Spillane, Halverson, and Diamond, 2004). Theory of traits emphasized that leadership qualities are inborn which can not be developed later on. However, the effectiveness of these traits helps leaders to control and establish vision to guide the people in right direction. Evolution of trait theory suggested that it is not necessary that leaders with inborn traits are only competent leaders but these traits can be learned and exercised to achieve goals in an effective way. Besides that, leadership qualities such as honesty, integrity, ambition, ability to influence people through their skills, cognitive ability and business knowledge are the skills which are understood as naturally ingrained in individuals.
