Leadership Role of Executives in Building Customer Relationship Marketing

Dr. Adebowale Onatolu
Abstract:  “If leaders are to be effective in a diverse society, they need to understand their own preferred style and behaviors, and how these may differ from those preferred by others. Otherwise, their interactions with others are likely to be fraught with misattributions, misunderstandings, and misinterpretations,” (Ayman, & Korabik, 2010, p.1). By understanding their own leadership styles, executives can play significant leadership role in transferring their leadership styles to build a long-term relationship with their employees which translates into building Customer Relationship Marketing (CRM); a concept that focuses on establishing long-term relationships with customers. The paper will discuss the role of executives in the customer relationship marketing concept of the company.
