The most critical challenge in technology management is to motivate creative people by bringing their personal goals and the organizational goals together. In this paper we will examine some of the sources of informal power which is essential for leadership. Then we will discuss some definitions of leadership, heroic or charismatic leadership and management leadership. Finally, we will explore the impact of post-heroic leadership on some technical and manufacturing organizations.
